Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. - Proverbs 3:5-6
We pray for the Pastors and Staff of RPC that they would always put their trust in you. So often events occur, or other people make statements, or things do not happen the way we want them to -- and we panic. We want to fix problems or conflicts ourselves and bend those things to our will. Help our Pastors and Staff to heed the call to trust you instead. Give them the peace to relax in your presence and to rest in your will rather than rely on their own insight. We pray that they would acknowledge you in all that they endeavor to do, and in return you would bless their work.
We pray for our PNC, that their sole guide in their search for a new Senior Pastor would be their trust in you. Let them not be swayed by the "easy answers" or their own understandings, but their reliance upon you only. As they proceed, may they acknowledge you, your wisdom, and your guidance in this search and may you lead them on the path to a candidate who will lead RPC with wisdom and love.
In Your Name we pray, AMEN.
