Pray for your Pastors


Church Family,

I read last night about a sheriff in Alabama who used the leftover lunch money for the prisoners he was supposed to care for to buy a $750,000 beach house. Back in world war 2 the state began allowing the sheriffs to legally keep any money left over in the account used to feed the inmates. This sheriff legally used the money, but morally what he did was questionable at best and at worst should be prosecuted.

Ezekiel 34:7-10 “Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: 8As I live, declares the Lord GOD, surely because my sheep have become a prey, and my sheep have become food for all the wild beasts, since there was no shepherd, and because my shepherds have not searched for my sheep, but the shepherds have fed themselves, and have not fed my sheep, 9therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: 10Thus says the Lord GOD, Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require my sheep at their hand and put a stop to their feeding the sheep. No longer shall the shepherds feed themselves. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths, that they may not be food for them.

I’ve preached on this passage many times throughout my ministry. I do not take lightly the charge that God has given me as an undershepherd. Yet, I realize more and more each day that I need your prayers. There are so many areas that I need to grow and decrease that Christ might increase.

Can I kindly ask you today to pray for your church leaders, pastors, deacons, teachers, etc.? I thank you in advance.

How to pray?

Pray for my family. Since October 29th our family has been hit hard with health issues. In the last 2 weeks alone Natalie has had emergency surgery, Michael Brian has been fighting RSV, and now Aubree has it. Her temperature was 104.3 last night and this morning.

Pray that I will be a good husband and father. Pray that I will spend time in God’s word. Pray for that area of weakness that you see in my life. Pray that God will use me as He wishes.

Reminders:

  1. This Sunday please turn in any candy for the Easter Egg Hunt that is coming up March 24th from 11am to 1pm. Lunch will be served.
  2. Easter Services are as follows: 6:45 Sunrise Service, 7am Worship service inside, and last breakfast. There will be no more services that day.

Love, Serve, Go

Brian Winburn
