I asked the following question in a room of 60 people recently. “How many of you are consistently praying for one of the other youth leaders or pastors in your community?” ONE hand. One hand went up. We have to pray for one another. It is beyond important. I have heard too many stories lately of pastors failing, community tragedies, and churches withering away without so much as reaching out a weak hand for help.
Pastors, church members, youth leaders – we are in this together and only as strong as our weakest link. Satan WILL target that link in many different ways to accomplish what he desires – a stop to the growth of God’s kingdom work.
Pray for one another. Not in a mealymouthed Wednesday night prayer list kind of way, but in a real, authentic understanding of who you are in Christ.
We are better together.
