Lord our God, you sent your Son among us as a stranger, stripped of all majesty and privilege, that from his poverty the entire world might be enriched with the incomparable gift of redemption. Sustain all pastors who desire to set their people’s needs above their own, and inspire all who hear the pastoral call to serve, through Christ our Lord. Amen
Prayer from Magnificat—U.S. Edition, Morning Prayer, Wednesday, January 5, 2022.
