We bless God for how He imparts His word through our Pastor in worship service and Bible study. Through his ministry, many hearts are being illumined, questions answered and fears dispelled. Saints are being empowered to witness for Christ and committed to building God's kingdom. It is not church as usual. It is not Bible study as usual. It's not even praise as usual. God is calling this local branch of Zion to a higher place of praise and He's using our Pastor in a marvelous way as shepherd of this flock.
Pastor - stay encouraged, as you are reminded in God's word that “your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”
Prayer: Abba Father, we bless You for being our God, our Daddy, our all in all. You are our total dependence. It is in You that we live, breathe, move, love and have any being at all. We thank You for Your Son Jesus Christ and His shed blood that never looses its power; this same blood that has declared us righteous before You. God, we thank You for Your everlasting Word that heals, encourages, comforts, convicts, draws and saves. What a great, great salvation! You are truly an awesome, awesome God!
Now Lord, we lift our Pastor and First Lady before You like never before, as we offer thanks unto You for their leadership. Lord, continue to be their Shield and their Shade. Restore unto them Your strength as they willingly and obediently do Your work. And Father, we will continue to give you all of the glory, all of the honor and all of the praise, in Jesus’ name. Amen. God, we love You!
