James 3:1 Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness
This is the one prayer that always hits the closest to home. My job is working with people in the church. It’s my calling, my passion, and part of my life purpose, yet…it’s also my job. I have to guard myself against having a business-like attitude towards God’s work and His people.
I pray that God helps me to not get lost in the hustle and bustle of staffing rooms, organizing environments, and teaching large groups of children. I pray that God will give me wisdom about how to effectively pastor the children, parents, and volunteers that I will interact with each morning. There is the potential for life-change in every conversation I have with somebody each weekend, and I do not want to miss the opportunities that I’m given.
Thank you Jesus, that you’ve given me this unique position to influence families each and every week, and I pray that I never lose sight of the privilege afforded to me to partake in God’s redeeming plan for mankind!
