I just want to thank You Jesus, thank You Jesus, thank You Jesus thank You, I really wanna thank You Jesus, thank You Jesus, thank You Jesus thank You. You are Mighty God, the Great I AM, alleluia, alleluia, You are Mighty God, the Great I AM, alleluia, alleluia.

My Father, my Father I just wanna thank You for Your goodness and for Your wonderful works in my life and to the children of men, we cannot thank You enough. Glory be to Your Name on high. Blessed Redeemer, Thank You and thank You, and thank You again and again. Glory be to Your Name on high. Faithful Father, I don’t know how to thank You enough but Father receive my Praise forever and ever.

Beloved, how are doing? Hope you are doing well? It’s our prayer time and will answer and not delay. He will show us mercy and will hasten to do what He has promised. The Name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous runneth into it and are safe. His eye run through and fro the earth looking for you to show Himself strong on their behalf. Glory be to Him on high. Praise the Lord.

Beloved, our topic today is coveting prayers for every minister of the gospel including you if you been faithful in the calling of “Go Yea” the prayer is for you but if not you have to be sincere enough to pray for the labourers in Lord’s vineyard.

Why do the ministers need prayer? The enemy of our soul is roaring about like a roaring lion looking for who to devour. Why do we need prayer? We must live by every Word of God no matter how difficult you thing it is because we are savour of gospel (2 Cor 2:15). We must stand by every Word spoken by God no matter the storm of we might be facing. So we need your prayers to stand firm and not shaken. Our faith must stand firm no matter the what comes our way.

The enemy fights relentlessly for the Word of God we take to every nook and corner of world, snatching souls from hell delivering many from demonic oppression and hinderers.

We need your prayers because the Kingdom of God is not in word but in power (1 Cor 4:20). Beloved, we must not puff up and must be humble and live a simple life and is only the Spirit that will help a man.

Brethren, pray for us.” 1Thessalonians 5:25

 

This one morning in the year we reserved to refresh the reader’s memory upon the subject of prayer for ministers, and we do most earnestly implore every Christian household to grant the fervent request of the text first uttered by an apostle and now repeated by us. Brethren, our work is Solemnly momentous, involving weal or woe to thousands; we treat with souls for God on eternal business, and our word is either a savour of life unto life, or of death unto death.

A very heavy responsibility rests upon us, and it will be no small mercy if at the last we be found clear of the blood of all men. As officers in Christ’s army, we are the especial mark of the enmity of men and devils; they watch for our halting, and labour to take us by the heels. Our sacred calling involves us in temptations from which you are exempt, above all it too often draws us away from our personal enjoyment of truth into a ministerial and official consideration of it.

We meet with many knotty cases, and our wits are at a non plus; we observe very sad backslidings, and our hearts are wounded; we see millions perishing, and our spirits sink. We wish to profit you by our preaching; we desire to be blest to your children; we long to be useful both to saints and sinners; therefore, dear friends, intercede for us with our God. Miserable men are we if we miss the aid of your prayers, but happy are we if we live in your supplications.

You do not look to us but to our Master for spiritual blessings, and yet how many times has He given those blessings through His ministers; ask then, again and again, that we may be the earthen vessels into which the Lord may put the treasure of the gospel. We, the whole company of missionaries, ministers, city missionaries, and students, do in the name of Jesus beseech you

“Brethren, Pray for us.  more from below:

Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me: for Thou art the God of my salvation; on Thee do I wait all the day.” Psalm 25:5

 

When the believer has begun with trembling feet to walk in the way of the Lord, he asks to be still led onward like a little child upheld by its parent’s helping hand, and he craves to be further instructed in the alphabet of truth. Experimental teaching is the burden of this prayer.

David knew much, but he felt his ignorance, and desired to be still in the Lord’s school: four times over in two verses he applies for a scholarship in the college of grace. It were well for many professors if instead of following their own devices, and cutting out new paths of thought for themselves, they would enquire for the good old ways of God’s own truth, and beseech the Holy Ghost to give them sanctified understandings and teachable spirits. ” For thou art the God of my salvation.”

The Three-One Jehovah is the Author and Perfecter of salvation to His people. Reader, is He the God of your salvation? Do you find in the Father’s election, in the Son’s atonement, and in the Spirit’s quickening, all the grounds of your eternal hopes? If so, you may use this as an argument for obtaining further blessings; if the Lord has ordained to save you, surely He will not refuse to instruct you in His ways. It is a happy thing when we can address the Lord with the confidence which David here manifests, it gives us great power in prayer, and comfort in trial. ” On Thee do I wait all the day.”

Patience is the fair handmaid and daughter of faith; we cheerfully wait when we are certain that we shall not wait in vain. It is our duty and our privilege to wait upon the Lord in service, in worship, in expectancy, in trust all the days of our life. Our faith will be tried faith, and if it be of the true kind, it will bear continued trial without yielding. We shall not grow weary of waiting upon God if we remember how long and how graciously He once waited for us.

Yes we sure that our waiting is not in vain for when we pray, answers we come. May God grant us grace to stand through in Jesus name.

Our Father in heaven, answer us when we pray and grant answers to all our prayers in Jesus Name. According to your Word Lord, look upon us with mercy and grant Your  grace to your labourers in Jesus Name.

Beloved, intercede for the ministers of the gospel of our Lord Jesus.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
