This evening in worship you will hear a pastor preach God’s Word. You will worship with a seminary student. The sem student and the senior pastor – both were once just a student wondering whether and how the Lord was calling him into the ministry (for one it was many years ago, for the other, not so much). Today’s prayer topic is to pray for those who are preparing for full time church work. Pray for those teacher education students learning the educational theories they will one day put into practice. Pray for those in first year Greek and Hebrew classes learning the Biblical languages. Pray for them and their future ministries. Pray that God would give them wisdom and skill to share His grace and love with His world.
Tonight’s example for prayer from Jesus comes from a statement He told Peter on Maundy Thursday evening – a statement that should have cut to Peter’s core. “I have prayed for you, Peter, that your faith may not fail.” (Luke 22:31-34). Why would the Lord lavish such love on Peter – and also you and me/ Come tonight – worship services at 500 and 7:00 pm
