One Reason to Pray for Your Church & Pastor Today

There are many reasons to pray for your church and her ministries. Westminster Larger Catechism Question 159 sets forth not only the way pastors are to preach, but also how they are to lead in ministry. To do the following well, your pastor and church desperately needs your prayers!

How is the Word of God to be preached by those that are called to do so?

What are they to do?
“They who are called to labor in the ministry of the Word,
are to preach sound doctrine,”

How are they to do so?
“diligently, in season and out of season;
plainly, not in the enticing words of man’s wisdom,
but in demonstration of the Spirit, and of power;
faithfully, making known the whole counsel of God;
wisely, applying themselves to the necessities and capacities of the hearers;
zealously, with fervent love to God and the souls of his people;
sincerely, aiming at his glory, and their conversion, edification, and salvation.”
