We feel privileged to stand and speak Your Word to others, to open Truths and aid in bringing individuals to the knowledge of the same, to provide encouragement to souls who feel discouraged by life, to, through Your Wisdom restore order into lives that are askew, to shine Light into the dark corners of people's lives, and to share the Life Giving Message. We feel unworthy but blessed to do so. But Father, we cry out to You for ourselves and our fellow ministers, for we need You and Your Presence too. We too struggle, we too have our doubts, we too have questions without answers this side of eternity, we too wander in the wilderness of doubt, we too face the failure of sin, we too have to struggle to love those who have wounded us, we too have loved ones with sickness, we too grieve in loss, we too at times face a personal energy crisis, we too wonder over our own effectiveness. We need, You, the God we proclaim, as much as those to whom we proclaim You. Assure, these Your ministers of Your presence and strengthen our faith.
In Our Lord's Name,
