Pray For Your Pastor!

Articles Collection cover image

If the Apostle Paul told the Corinthians, “You also must help us by prayer” (2 Corinthians 1:11) so that he could endure the hardships of ministry, how much more do you think your local church pastor needs your prayerful support? I’ve been noticing a lot (an awful lot!) of articles lately that call on people to do this very thing. What interests me is that nearly all of these have been written by pastors. The point is clear: Pray for your pastor!

Pastors see the reality of the spiritual battle they face and they long for prayers–your prayers. Here are just a few of the articles that may help with the specifics of what you can pray about:
