“The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” (James 5:16).
A lot of us are at the beginning of a very busy week. I’m the kind of guy who gets to work, and then half an hour later remembers that I haven’t prayed about my work yet.
Bring your preaching, your projects, and your people before the throne of grace this morning and ask for the Spirit to empower you for your ministry. That’s how we get our power. That’s how our ministry becomes effective and loving.
Do it before all the stuff you have to do distracts you from the One you do it for.
