As we ready ourselves to proclaim Your Word on Sunday, we pray that we will be reminded of our purpose. Even as we consider, why we preach, why we serve, and why we do what we do, please help us to remember that it is not for our own popularity. May our purpose, our plans, our intentions, our goals, and our heart be in line with Yours.
Help us never forget that we are not greater than our Master, rather we are completely dependent on Him. Help us to be fully aware that He is the One who is worthy of all glory, praise, and honor. May every one of Your preachers, live with this knowledge in our heads and our hearts.
