Look to the Holy Scriptures for comfort and strength.
Remember the words of Isaiah 50:10: “Let him who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on his God.”  During every challenging time and when we look for answers and direction, Isaiah tells us to entrust it all to the Lord in prayer.
 
The reason we can trust him with our lives, our circumstances and trust him to overcome the challenges that our congregations have to deal with is because of his ‘Name’. The Lord’s ‘Name’ speaks of his never ending grace and of his commitment to us. The Lord took an oath by his Name to be our God. The Lord we trust continues to be good, gracious and committed to all of us. We know this, because he didn’t spare Jesus to make us his own.
 
Uphold your congregation and her leadership in prayer, intercede for the minister and all the leaders, fast for them, and let them know you are praying for them and walking with them.
As you do that, let me share what the Holy Scriptures say. We can be praying for each other and for our leaders during trying times:
 
• Pray that the Lord might strengthen our leaders and their faith that God answers prayer, by grace.  James 5: 16 – 20.

 

• Pray that as the Lord knows us and our circumstances, our leaders might know that he holds them and continues to guide them. Ps 139: 1 – 3 9,10.
• Pray that the Lord will give them comfort as they come to him for mercy, wisdom and answers. Ps 55: 22 and 2 Cor 1: 3 and 4.
 
As a church community we want to uphold the church and her leaders before the Lord. As a church community. let’s pray - in our quiet times, our small groups, and during our family devotions.
 
We want our congregational leaders to know that they are not alone, that we stand together and that the Lord journeys with us. In our challenges and our inefficiencies, may the Lord give us the faith and strength to walk God’s journey together, as one!
 
I look to the Scriptures for comfort and strength. Only through his Word and his Spirit will he guide, protect and keep us. Because Jesus is our help and our salvation.
 
Let us put our trust in Christ who saves and sustains,
and the love of God will carry us through every test, tribulation and trying time.
