When Paul the apostle wrote his epistle to the Thessalonians, he opened his epistle by informing the Thessalonians that he constantly prayed for them (1 Thessalonians 1:2). As Paul closes his letter, he asks the church in Thessalonica to pray for him.
We all seem to want prayer when we have struggles in our lives. Often times, the first person that we go to is our pastor or another leader in the church. I wonder how many of us stop to pray for the leaders in the church.
I know that our church leaders may not say anything, but they need prayer just as much as the rest of us. In fact, leaders in the church may need prayer more than anyone else. Next time we hit our knees, let's remember those who are leaders in our church.
