Church members who are unifying are church members who pray for their church. Today, we discuss seven areas that you can pray for your pastor and church staff.

Some highlights from today’s episode include:

  • The number one way you can help your pastor and church staff is by praying for them.
  • Imagine if people spent as much time praying for the pastor’s sermon as they did critiquing it.
  • You will burn out in ministry if you rely on your own strength. You have to rely on the Spirit.
  • Don’t let your work for God take away from your walk with God.
