Loving Lord Jesus, we are so blessed to have the pastor that You have brought to our congregation. Thank You for him and his family. I pray that as he faithfully delivers Your Word to us all week by week he will be encouraged to know that he is fulfilling Your commission to go into all the world and teach the gospel, in a very special way.
Strengthen his walk with You Lord I pray, as he studies the Bible and prepares to deliver the truth of Scripture to all of us that gather week by week, to be fed from Your Word. And I pray that You would send him little encouragements from his congregation or other believers, with whom he comes in contact, as well as opening up the Scriptures more and more to his own understanding as we all seek to mature in the faith.
Thank You Lord for our dear pastor.
