Prayers of the People

When I’m preparing for worship for Sunday morning I find it’s best to write the prayers of the people when I’m on the subway riding down to the church.

I can hear the prayers of everybody around me better when I’m listening to the soul of the crowd. I don’t get siloed away in my prayers; instead, pastor is listening to the prayers around her.

And then on Sunday morning I bring those prayers with me to the pulpit and I pray them on behalf of my congregation.
