“More than any other aspect of a pastor’s calling, prayer is the most difficult to maintain.
Prayer requires time.
And prayer is usually most fruitful when done in a quiet place, without constant interruption or distraction.
Unfortunately, prayer doesn’t demand your attention.
In the midst of people wanting your time and urgent tasks to complete, spending time in prayer is easy to neglect…
Pastors, I know your schedule is busy.
But, don’t forget to pray for your people this week. Pray with your people. Set time aside in a quiet place and cry out to God for your people.
Make the other pastoral matters wait.
It is safe to say they are less important than prayer.”
