how to pray through the process
We covet your prayers through this process. Here is how you can be in prayer for your Pastoral Search Committee, your future Senior Pastor, and the congregation and Grand Strand:
Pray with us:
Father God, You are so generous in Your thoughts of Beach Church. We are humbled by Your love. We pray that Your thoughts about this pastoral search are our thoughts. We pray for the Pastoral Search Committee. We pray that they stay in the center of Your wisdom.
For the search committee and us as partners, Lord, we pray that You will be in our conversations. We pray that You give us eyes to see the pastor that You have waiting to lead our Beach Church family. We pray that You oh Father will give us ears to hear and to recognize Your voice and Your vision in Your man for us. Please help us not get distracted by chatter or grow weary of the journey. Help us not choose convenience, but look for the richness of the character, depth of wisdom, loving gentleness and the power of strength that You oh Lord have already placed in the shepherd who awaits our discovery. We pray over every part of this journey; this Beach Church adventure with You.
Lord help us to stay grateful, loving and generous. Father help us to choose Your timing in our search, not ours. Lord, we remain faithful to give only You our worship.
It’s in the powerful name of Christ Jesus we pray. Amen.
Pray for us:
Pray that the true needs of the congregation will come to surface as the church staff and committee seek the Lord about what is next for our church. Pray that no personal agenda would surface but only the will of the Lord as the search committee and staff seeks what He has next for the congregation.
“And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.”
