A Special Prayer for You
Minister Beverly A. Lyons
As we close out Pastoral Appreciation Month, it is truly our honor to pray for and with you -- now and in the days to come:
O, Holy Father, we do thank and bless You for Your sons and daughters who are continually preaching, teaching, praying, and living Your Word despite the challenges of these uncertain times.
As You have honored Your vessels, in obedience to 1 Peter 2:17 we honor them, too.
We seek You for their continued revitalized determination to love You, to obey You and walk in humility before You. We recognize the work of Your hand in their lives, the keeping of their families and spiritual growth of Your people under their leadership.
Father, in the Name of Jesus, help us to honor them during this month that is set aside for Pastoral Appreciation and Recognition, and in the days to come. Thank You for their contributions of love, sacrificial service and commitment to their callings in You. It is from Your Hand that they are refreshed, encouraged, and sustained.
Thank You, Father, in Jesus’ name, for Your continued abundant blessings upon them. Amen!
