Discouraged Pastor

The pastor of a small church in New Hampshire is discouraged to see that members of his church are showing little interest in spiritual growth and in reaching their community. Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring new life to this church, to convict people of any sin in their lives and to call people to return to God as their first love. Ask God to help the men in the church to grow in maturity and become leaders in their homes. Lift up the pastor’s family, and pray for God to encourage them and give them guidance about how to serve Him in their church and community.
