Almost no one would disagree that the times we find ourselves in at this very moment are times of great turmoil here in the United States and around the world. Our current Presidential campaigns are further dividing the people of this country into more and more strident and disagreeable camps. The Middle East is a hot bed of religious conflict. Russia is threatening its now-independent neighboring countries that were once a part of the Soviet Union. China is threatening Japan. North Korea is threatening everyone.
At such times, pastors can play a key role in guiding their congregations by helping the people to know for what they should pray. That’s the subject of my featured Podcast No. 39 for this week. I invite you to click the link on this page that will take you to my Sermon-Coach.com website so that you may listen to what I have to say.
Over the many years of my ministry, one topic has continually pressed in upon me. I believe this is because the Holy Spirit is relentless in promoting the vital importance of God’s people praying for a fresh outpouring of the Spirit into the lives of believers, into the churches, and into our nation.
Such a fresh movement of the Spirit is really a coming to life again of God’s people. It’s a resuscitation, a breathing of renewed life, an awakening, a revival. It’s something the followers of Christ should be seeking from God through prayer.
Pastors play a key role in helping the people in their charge to understand how crucially important this revival is to the success of God’s Kingdom here on earth. It’s a worthy subject to preach about. It’s all the more important in times like these. I truly hope you will listen to this Podcast and carefully and prayerfully consider my appeal to you, as a pastor.
I continue to feel very grateful and am humbled by the many positive comments about my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is now available at Amazon.com by clicking here.
This book gives some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what you’ve said from the pulpit when they come to worship services in the church where you serve as pastor.
