Prayer of a new Reader

From the May 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I pray, dear Father, that what is being heard is
Your Word
Your voice:
The cadence, tone, inflection of Soul 
guiding the reading of Your message this hour
and shepherding this congregation of seekers to You.

—Kristen Behan

A Reader is a member of a Church of Christ, Scientist, who reads citations from the Pastor during church services.
