But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called "Today," so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. - Hebrews 3:13 (NIV)
We pray for the Pastors and Staff of RPC that they would feel a community of encouragement when they come to work. We pray that they would be encouraged by their co-workers and the congregants of RPC each day in the work that they each do. Grow within them a willingness and a love for encouraging one another so that they each may be edified in the work that they do. We pray that RPC would always be a place of support and grace for those who work there. We pray our Pastors and Staff would show that support and grace for one another and that we, as a congregation, would demonstrate our support and grace for them too. Help us to be the encouragement they need. Help us to show compassion and love so that our Pastors and Staff can focus on the work they do in your name.
We pray that our PNC members would be encouraged also, Lord. Help them to encourage one another daily and to extend grace easily. Let none of their hearts be hardened toward one another or toward their work. As a congregation, help us to encourage this committee in its work. Remind each of us of the labor of this group, and inspire us to reach out, to show gratitude and grace for all that they do.
In your name we pray, AMEN.
