Dear Father in Heaven, As Your men stand to proclaim the Word tomorrow, we do so with the realization that many who hear us will be hurting. May We use everything that is in us to deliver a message of healing, comfort, peace, hope, compassion, and love.
Father, we also know that many of Your men who will preach on Sunday are hurting as well. As You know, Dear God, some of Your men are in physical pain, some are in mental distress, some are struggling spiritually. There are some of Your men who are going through marriage difficulty, problems with their children, and financial stress. Some of them have had disagreements with their elders and they are concerned about their future. Some of Your men are dealing with the continued grief from losing their wife, a child, or someone else close to them. Some of Your preachers are taking care of a sick child, or parent, or their wife.
Please give these men the physical, mental, and spiritual strength they need to preach through their pain. Please give us peace when our souls are troubled. Help us to cast all of our cares on You, knowing that You are aware and that You care. Thank You, Father for loving us and for the promise that You will be with us always.
In Jesus Name we Pray,
