While Labor Day weekend unfolds, we are reminded to honor the working people of America. As we do that, I am extremely grateful for the job I have. Being the pastor of Olive Baptist Church is a great responsibility as well as a joyful task. As I do my work, I ask you again to pray Malachi 2:6 over me. Ask the Father that “true instruction be in my mouth, and unrighteousness not be found on my lips; that I will walk with God in peace and uprightness and turn many back from iniquity.”
Please pray for me regarding these four areas of my life:
1. Exposition ~ I Ask the Lord to make me a committed Bible preacher.
2. Ethics ~ My desire is to have my walk match my talk.
3. Encounter ~ I long to have a fresh walk with Jesus day by day
4. Evangelism ~ My yearning is to be a personal soul-winner. Pray for me to be bold.
If you have a job this Labor Day, be thankful for it. Seek the Lord for a Bible promise regarding your employment. You are here to be salt and light in a dark world. Your career affords you a place of influence. Ask God to make you usable. Then get ready because He is about to place you in an eternal job market.
