A prayer for a preacher

Filed under: Lent 2012 — komonchak @ 9:16 am

St. Augustine began one of his homilies with the following  prayer which, with proper adjustments, could be said by both preacher and congregation as the preacher begins to speak:

“May the Lord help us by your prayers so that I say what I should say and you should  hear, so that the Word of God may be useful to us all.”

[EnPs 139[140], 1: PL 37: 1803]
