I hope everyone will be in Church today! I love Church! Last weekend our prayer coordinator handed out a 40 day intercessory prayer guide for church memebers to begin praying for our new pastor. We started this last Wednesday. Our pastor has been here about a month but his family was unable to move here with him until last week. Today is the family's first day at First Baptist Screven. It is a very exciting time for our church. Here is today's prayer for our pastor.


" Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth" 2 Tim. 2:15

. Pray for your pastor to spend much time in the Word, gaining wisdom and approval from God.

. Pray for his discernment to grow as he diligently applies himself to accurately handle the Word.

. Pray for him to be a teacher that church members will follow in also studying the Word of God.


It is unreal to me how well wrote this little prayer guide is. It is put out by the North American Mission Board. I encourage you to pray for your pastor daily too. It doesn't matter if your pastor is new or old, if you like him or you don't, or even if your church doesn't have one at this time. You cant go wrong praying for your pastor.

I pray for blessing to you and yours. We will be in Church today. We have no pastor..ours retired. Pray for us to have a teacher...not just a preacher!

Excellent advice, Tina!

Tina,
As a pastor's wife I can tell you that a pastor truly appreciates and covets the prayers of his congregation. There's usually as much preaching from the pulpit as there is praying from the pew....

I printed out the posting and comments for my friend Roselyn and she was flabbergasted that anyone had anything to say! Her family appreciated it also.

I'm afraid I did not go to church today...


...because I go on Saturday =)

Thank you for the reminder to pray for our pastors. I've always liked the five fingered prayer approach...helps me remember who I'm praying for (I need all the help I can get remembering these days!)

I think your Mom's blog has been stolen by a spammer. She may have to do something get it back. Nothing is sacred anymore! I was afraid it was my computer and I had a virus or something.
