The Preacher’s Prayer

A prayer that I wrote for my friend, Rodney Duke, about ten years ago.  Pastors, priests, and ministers: feel free to borrow it for Palm Sunday.

God, may your Holy Spirit ride upon my words into the hearts and minds of this congregation, just as Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem; and may that serve as a reminder that you can still use a jackass to reach your people.  Amen.
