Last month I received a letter from the members of New Hope Christian Church in Whitestown, Indiana.
It read, “Each week we are selecting a minister for whom we will diligently pray. This week you are to be the recipient of our concentrated prayer effort. The members of the New Hope family are praying that God will grant you strength, understanding, good physical health, and His constant companionship as you serve Him. We thank God for your faithful ministry and we seek to encourage you as you faithfully preach the Word. May God bless you richly as you serve Him daily.”
What a great idea! This is something any church could do to encourage ministers and promote a Kingdom vision.
I emailed the preacher to thank the church on my behalf. Their letter came at just the right time and meant so much to me.
