Prayer for committee meeting

From Episcopal Cafe:

Bishop Cathy Roskam (bio) wrote these wise words. Try this prayer before your next vestry meeting:

God our true perfection:

Grant us brevity and resolution

To do only those things which should be done

And keep from all that we ought not to do;

To say all things needful, and not more.

Punctuate our conversations with your grace,

And when the mind grows weary and the hour late,

Bring us, in your mercy, to a firm conclusion;

Through Jesus, your (First and) Last Word. Amen.
