Day 10 - Pray for Leaders

    01.17.18 | by 40 Day Team

    Warm-Up
    Pray: “Father, thank you for my church and the team that you have brought together. They have amazing gifts and abilities that you have blessed them with.  I reap so many benefits because of it.  This expression of your local church is what it is because of each of these individuals.  Thank you for their role in ministry. Holy Spirit move within my church that we may do great things for your kingdom!”

    Round 1
    Read Isaiah 55:8-9, Romans 8:28 and Galatians 6:9.  Read Galatians 6:9 out loud 3 times.  Write down what stands out to you about these verses.

    Round 2:
    Write down as many staff members of your church as you can.

    Spend the next 5-10 minutes praying for each of them by name thanking God for the work they are doing.  Pray for their families that support them in the roles that they are doing.

    Round 3
    What can you do this week to let them know that you value their efforts at your church? Maybe write them a note or send them a text or take them for coffee.  Ask God for a really cool idea to let them know that you appreciate them and are thankful for God using their gifts and talents for your church. 

    Burnout
    Set a daily alarm on your phone for the next seven days. Pray at least one minute for the staff members you wrote down and their families.
