7th Day of Prayer

Welcome to our 7th day of prayer as the people of Faith Lutheran Church. Our prayer theme for today is “Our Pastors, Staff, and Leaders”.

Our reading today is from 1 Thessalonians 5, verses 12-15:

But we appeal to you, brothers and sisters, to respect those who labor among you, and have charge of you in the Lord and admonish you; esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. And we urge you, beloved, to admonish the idlers, encourage the faint hearted, help the weak, be patient with all of them. See that none of you repays evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to all.

Let’s pray together.

Offer a prayer thanking God for those who serve among us as their occupation and ministry focus. Name these people by name. (PAUSE)

Ask that God’s Spirit might sustain these people in their work, and might fill them with the joy of the gospel as they work with us. (PAUSE)

Ask that the members of the congregation might honor them for their work’s sake, and might keep them in their prayers regularly. (PAUSE)

Amen. May God bless you and keep you in God’s grace.
