Ministry seems to take a little of our soul. It is sometimes wearying. Father, the headaches and heartaches, the pressures, the big things and the little things replicated hurt Your men. And eventually many of them lose their passion for preaching. The weight of it all and the issues they can seem overwhelming. And over time our passion for the congregation, the work, even preaching wanes. We know that You understand. Father, we ask today, that You restore that passion. May these men who hold forth Your Word be renewed. May they be reminded of the great mission of bringing Good, life-changing News to others. May that passion rekindle first in their heart and then in the hearts of those who hear them a renewed zeal to tell others about You and Your Son and Your Grace and Your Message. May they awake tomorrow with a zeal and a fervor to bring Your Words with passion to those who hear them. We ask that you bless them.
We ask this in Jesus Name,
