Join CDF Capital in Prayer for Ministers

The dark ambiguity of the global pandemic forced folks, including church leaders, into a spirit of survival toward trying to figure out new godly rhythms for themselves and for their churches. It caused a lot of stress and insecurity. A few leaders even second guessed their calling.

More than two years later, however, as the world has somewhat gotten into a new rhythm of life, many church leaders have a renewed sense of purpose. Their ministries look a tad bit different but are still empowered by the movement of God. The Church is primed for even greater Kingdom impact.

The light, despite the unknowns of the past two years, is slowly getting brighter.

As we consider what lies ahead on the roads that we all travel and as we slowly emerge from the isolating abyss that is COVID-19, prayerful self-care is going to be an integral component of leadership recovery.

“Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise” (James 5:13).

James, in his letter to the early Christian churches, reminds the people of God that prayer, for both seeking God’s provisions and praising Him for the blessings provided, are equally important. When we are in need, we should not hesitate to ask God. When we are blessed with abundance, we should not delay in giving God the praise.

It is this rhythm of both that will help in the self-care that our leaders will need moving forward.

“Lord, we pray for Your strength to be upon our pastors and leaders of Your church. May they develop a healthy rhythm of seeking Your provisions and praising You for blessings.”

Will you pray this prayer for your ministers this week?
