OCTOBER 14,  2018



Prayer for Pastor Appreciation Month

Almighty and ever-gracious God.  We give you thanks for Pastor Jensen.  You have appointed her to be our Shepherd,  to minister to our spiritual needs, to reach the lost souls in our community, to prayerfully guide and tend to our church..  We realize that the tasks of a pastor are demanding, her job is never done.  She listens, cares, and prays for us, encourages and teaches us and reaches out to those in need of help and salvation. We give you thanks, O Lord, for our pastor.  On this day we pray that you would bless her and her family, and that you would keep them out of harm’s way.  May you keep her from temptations and negativity.  May the joy of the Lord always remain in her heart.   Amen.
