Day Three

Verse:

The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. – 1 Timothy 5:17 (NIV)

Be responsive to your pastoral leaders. Listen to their counsel. They are alert to the condition of your lives and work under the strict supervision of God. Contribute to the joy of their leadership, not its drudgery. Why would you want to make things harder for them? – Hebrews 13:17 (MSG)

Prayer:

“God, thank You that You created the church! That it is Yours and belongs to You! Thank You for my church and the Pastors to whom You have entrusted it! I pray that You would continue to lead and guide them according to Your perfect will. Protect, bless, and strengthen them and their families as they lead. I also pray that You would help me to serve You, by serving my church and my Pastors! Give me eyes to see and a life that is quick to respond. I pray that You would continue to give me Your heart for my church, and its leaders. Thank you for the blessing of City First Church!”
