From Jeff McIlroy,
We gathered at the journey Outpost to pray for ministers across the city. Two ministers, Alex Walyomu and Harriet Kefeza from the Kibo program in Jinja Uganda were there also, and so we prayed for ministers across the world.
We prayed for so many things for God to do for, and bless, these ministers. Their job is so important, their involvement in their jobs so completely immersive, their jobs so completely scrutinized, that we felt a passionate urge for God to give them divine help.
We prayed that we could see a blurring of the line between lay people and ministers, as truly we are all to be ministers who carry out, and do our part, for the Great Commission.
From Greg Taylor,
Many pastors struggle with difficult relationships with their elders.
I have had those times in churches.
Now, however, I have elders who show up to pray for me.
During our "Seek God for the City" one of the days was to pray for pastors. Five shepherds showed up to pray for me, the other ministers, and our guests from Uganda.
Together we prayed in three languages: English, Lusoga, and Spanish. Then we sang in two languages: This Little Light of Mine and God is So Good.
The prayer touched our church staff who all humbly serve children, youth, guests, members, community, and missionaries worldwide. Who serves the servants? These shepherds came to serve.
My request to you is to pray for our shepherds of The Journey. They need our prayers as well. They pray for us, but we ought to hold them in highest honor by praying for them by name. You can see their photos and names here.
