As we kick off Pastor’s Appreciation Month, our NMI president, Teresa Hodge wants to encourage you in praying for our pastors and pastors around the globe, whose support for missions is vital. Pray for effective use of their time, strong relationships between the pastor, their spouse, and their children, time with family, physical and mental strength, opportunities to relax, and wisdom as they make decisions. She also encourages you to pray for Christ to live through them (Galatians 2:20), faithfulness for them to spend time reading God’s Word daily (Psalm 119:11), an intimate knowledge of God (Philippians 3:10), fear of God (Proverbs 1:7), strength to stand firm for the principles of His Word (Ephesians 6:10-11, 13), for them to live according to the Holy Spirit’s direction (Galatians 5:25), accuracy as they present the Scripture (2 Timothy 2:15), and contentment in ministry (Philippians 4:11-13).
