Pray for Your Pastor Today

From John Piper's When I Don't Desire God...
"[True preaching requires] heartfelt rigor in the unfolding of Scripture, which is heralded (not just discussed or analyzed) with a worshipful sense of exultation over the beauty of God's truth."
Technology and media folks serve to support the preaching of God's word. Today, I challenge you to support your pastor in a non-technical way. Pray for him, that in these final moments of preparation for this weekend's sermon...
  • He would see the beauty of God's truth.
  • He would love the beauty of God's truth.
  • He would exult in the beauty of God's truth.
  • His encounter with God would overflow in worship through hard work preparing his sermon.
  • His encounter with God would overflow in worship through preaching from the heart as well as the mind.
  • God would be exalted, not only by him but by all who listen.
