31 Days to Become a Better a Pastor: Pray For Your Congregation
There are many activities that a pastor can be involved in but prayer is one of the most important. There are many things that we can pray for but one of the most important is to pray for our congregation.
Pastors can have congregations ranging from 20 people to 20,000 people but no size should be an excuse not to pray. Many churches have directories of their members and adherents. These can be good tools for prayer. We don’t have to pray a long time for each person.
Praying for our congregation can seem like an interruption from “real” ministry but it is important and deserves the time. We may not understand all the details of how God uses our prayers but it is a part of our responsibility.
