4 Ways I Have Made It Through Difficult Seasons of Ministry

Disappointment leads to discouragement in ministry. As I have shared with pastors before, you must see these times as seasons, meaning they come and go. Nevertheless, how do you make it through the difficult seasons of ministry? The best way I can share about this subject is to relate how I personally have made it through difficult seasons of ministry. Let me give you four ways I have made it through these seasons. 1. Do not ever neglect your personal time with God daily. A consistent, daily time with God will help you make it through the difficult seasons of ministry.... Read more >>

Pastors and Churches, Help Us Pray for America in 2018

  The churches in America are God’s footprints in our nation. God’s churches are blessed and anointed by Him, and the greatest network our nation has. As President of the National Day of Prayer and Senior Pastor of a local church, I am convinced that we cannot complete our mission of mobilizing unified public prayer for America without the support of the pastors and churches in America. Our priority must be to mobilize pastors and churches to pray for America. Appealing to Pastors and Churches I appeal to pastors and churches in America, will you join us in praying for America...

Dave Butts, NDP Board Chairman on Awaken the Dawn

  Has something started? Saturday, Oct.7, 2017 is marked in my mind and heart as one of the most extraordinary days I've ever experienced.  That's kind of funny because it doesn't involve one of those big, memorable events that so often mark our memories. I was in Washington DC for the Awaken the Dawn days of worship and prayer. Though there was a main stage and some really great worship leaders and speakers, that's not what I will carry with me through my life. What impacted me most were 50 tents, one for each state, along with 8 larger tents... Read more >>

How to Pray for Your Pastor by Dr. Ronnie Floyd

Every Christ-follower engaged in a local church has a pastor. These followers of Christ should pray for their pastor. Pastors may appear as though they are so strong they do not need prayer. But I can assure you, any pastor genuinely called to the ministry knows he needs prayer; earnest, passionate, and effective prayer. “Pray for me” should be the number one personal request from a pastor of the church he serves. Stand on God’s Word When You Pray for Your Pastor I think the strength of prayer stands on the authority of Holy Scripture. You need to stand on... Read more >>

The Power of Prayer: What God Can Do Versus What We Can Do

  For far too long, the world has seen what we can do. It is time for the world to see what God can do. The power of prayer is contagious. We need a pandemic outbreak of the power of prayer personally, nationally, and globally. I believe that every Bible-believing Christian church, denomination, college, and ministry, as well as every Christian’s religious liberty stands on the shoulders of prayer for America. Furthermore, I believe prayer based upon Holy Scripture is the only thing that can bring our nation together and forward the Christian gospel and movement exponentially.  Yes, I believe in...

How to Pray for America Through October 2017: Four Prayer Priorities

The National Day of Prayer mobilizes unified public prayer for America. Let’s walk in unity by praying for these four priorities in our nation beginning now and continuing through the entire month of October. As you pray, imagine that you are joining with thousands of others standing in agreement in prayer for our nation. 1. Ask God to bring together His Church in America as a witness to the world. May they all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us, so that the world may believe you sent me.... Read more >>

Unified Prevailing Prayer for the Next Great Move of God in America

The entire church of Jesus Christ in our nation needs to convictionally come together in unified prevailing prayer for the next great move of God in America. There is no greater need in America. What will it take to wake us up, die to ourselves, and come together under the banner of the cross? There is no great movement of God that has ever occurred that does not begin with the extraordinary prayer of God’s people. Regardless of our denominational identity or independence, the time is now for us to come together before God in clear agreement, visible union, and... Read more >>

The Role of the Pastor and the Place of Prayer in Public Worship Services

I want to reaffirm and give a clear, consistent call to every pastor regarding the place of prayer in public worship services in the church. Today, I want to lift up a specific and significant way to do this. Let’s Return to the Pastoral Prayer Prayer led by the pastor of the church used to be a normal part of worship services. What was deemed in the past as a part of public worship, has now been minimized, eliminated, or delegated. This is not acceptable or good for the church. There are several examples in the Scriptures where spiritual leaders called... Read more >>
