Ephesians 6:18-20

John Piper said, "One of the great uses of Twitter and Facebook will be to prove at the Last Day that prayerlessness was not from lack of time."

Leonard Ravenhill said, "If the saints are the salt of the earth, then praying people are the salt of the church."

In their book, The Ten Greatest Revivals Ever, Elmer Towns and Douglas Porter share with us: "Revival swept through the island nations of the Pacific as well. In Indonesia, 100,000 evangelicals in 1903 became 300,000 strong within the decade. On the island of Nias, two-thirds of the population was converted to Christ. In Malagasia, Protestant church membership increased by 66 percent."


Today, we are going to consider another reason why we ought to pray for the ministers whom God has appointed as pastors, preachers, evangelists, teachers, and missionaries. We ought to pray that they are willing, enabled, and inspired to preach. We also ought to pray for them that they will continue to preach even when they are in circumstances and surrounded by people that are opposed to the Gospel.
