A Monday Pause ~ On MissionPosted on Oct 7, 2013 | 20 comments
Heavenly Father, we pause this morning and lift up our vocational ministers.
October is Pastor Appreciation Month
and we want to thank You for their
dedication to You and to their flocks.
Lord, they put in so many long hours and carry heavy burdens.
We expect so much of them and
often forget to thank them for their hard work.
Forgive us for taking them for granted and
show us creative ways to bless and
thank them for all they do for us.
And we thank YOU for them and ask You to grant them
a special measure of encouragement today, and
strengthen their hands so they can fulfill their calling.
Through Christ Jesus our Lord, Amen.
Thank you for joining me today! I hope you’ll be on the lookout for
ways to bless your pastor/rector/priest this month.
Even if you don’t have the resources for a gift,
a card or handwritten note would brighten their day,
and “strengthen their hands.”
And a face-to-face
“Thank you for all you do for our congregation,”
is always appreciated!
I’m heading back to Guatemala this week! Please keep our team in your prayers. If you’d like to keep up with our adventures, be sure to follow me on Facebook:
