How Often Do You Pray…

I read this quote today. My first thought…how often do I beseech the throne of grace for my pastors? Do I encourage more than I critique? Are they aware of the ways they serve my soul?

Let the thought sink deep into the heart of every church, that their minister will be such a minister as their prayers make him. … How perilous is the condition of that minister … whose heart is not encouraged, whose hands are not strengthened, and who is not upheld by the prayers of his people!
Gardiner Spring (1785-1873)

“Brothers, pray for us.” —1 Thessalonians 5:25
