It’s hard being a preacher. Hard being a pastor. Hard being a man of God, a shepherd and messenger of both mercy and judgment to a flock of sheep who are only half tuned in half the time. It wears a man down. So pray for your pastor. Be thankful for his ministry. Pray earnestly for serious things, not frivolous things. Pray that your pastor will see fruit from his labours, and be thankful and never forgetting on those occasions when God answers prayer exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, for these are times of refreshing for your pastor, and are his only recompense.
