Pulpit Notes: Forgiveness for Ungratefulness

Forgive me, Lord, when I fall into the sin of being ungrateful; when I become distracted and self-consumed; when I dread the day, the meetings, the schedule, the pace.

Holy God, forgive Your foolish servant. You are the One who stirs me from slumber. You grant me — and every disciple — purpose through vocation; You put me in a position of leadership in order to serve. In the face of humanity’s multitude of needs, may life not be lost to the hectic and mundane. When I am disquieted and ungrateful, grant me the opportunity of repentance. Renew me and grant me the mercy to rendezvous anew with Your Spirit and will. In Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Reverend Dr. Conrad C. Sharps
Senior Pastor
