Pray for your Pastor

Pray for your Pastor

Today I want to encourage you to pray for your Pastor. People often forget that Pastors are human too and they go through and experience the same challenges as we do. People often like to complain, criticize and judge Pastors for decisions they make, for their actions, and even for their personalities, but let me ask, are you praying for him/her? What do you do that helps make his assignment a little easier to fulfill? Do you know the vision God has placed in his heart? What part do you play in helping see that God-given vision come to pass? You may not agree with every decision a Pastor makes but what you can do is pray that he always hears from God in everything he does and that he obeys. You can also pray for his/her needs and for their families. So instead of complaining or praying “about” your Pastor, I want to encourage you to please pray for him/her and for his/her family. You will be amazed at what God does!

Hebrews 13:16-18 (AMP)

16 Do not forget or neglect to do kindness and good, to be generous and distribute and contribute to the needy [of the church as embodiment and proof of fellowship], for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

17 Obey your spiritual leaders and submit to them [continually recognizing their authority over you], for they are constantly keeping watch over your souls and guarding your spiritual welfare, as men who will have to render an account [of their trust]. [Do your part to] let them do this with gladness and not with sighing and groaning, for that would not be profitable to you [either].

18 Keep praying for us, for we are convinced that we have a good (clear) conscience, that we want to walk uprightly and live a noble life, acting honorably and in complete honesty in all things.

God does answers prayers!

I have a huge testimony to share with you today to prove that prayer works!
I made it to church today despite the pain of a fibromyalgia flare-up and pain from my back injuries I been having the past few days. I got to get lots hugs which I love and even had an opportunity to bless some friends.
Well today was also the release of a young man’s first cd. His name is Tanner and he is just . I was already planning to get a couple copies for gifts. Both me & my daughter, Julia, went and bought several. We went upstairs during the service & my hubby made it from work (yeah! thank you Lord!) to join us. Toward the end of the service I felt the Holy Spirit prompting me to purchase some more of Tanner’s cds. I leaned in and told my hubby I hear God saying to get some more cds. God will provide and I have to be obedient. He agreed and then I let Julia know that after the service I needed to go down and get some more. So we made our way down and grabbed some more. When I got to the register to pay I was told because of my purchase I was going to receive a shawl. I was like what? Now my friends hear me out…. I literally was praying to be able to get a prayer shawl last week!!!!!!! I truly believe because I was obedient and because of my prayers God blessed me. Not with just anything but with a such a special gift that I have been desiring for some time but had only asked for last week. & not only that, BUT LOOK what it says on the package and where it is from!!!!!!!!!!!! I was shaking I was soooo excited!!!! GOD IS INCREDIBLY AWESOME!!!!!!!! So Thank You Tanner and DWOC bookstore!!!!! You really made my day!!!! God has already worked a miracle through you today in blessing me with a desire of my heart!!!! So I know without a doubt that you will greatly impact many around the world with your work & testimony for the glory of God!!! =)))))))

Psalm 37:3-5 (AMP)
3 Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed.
4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.
