The How To's of Prayer Ministry

1.3 Integrity in Intercessory Ministry

A pastor recently made the comment. “I have a great church, so now, what do I do with these people?” I suspect these sentiments reflect some grief over resent misunderstandings in the church that he pastors.

Unfortunately we live in an imperfect world. As leaders, our primary goal may be to empower individuals to positions of authority who have personal unseen relationship deficiencies then heartily regret that we have no recourse to remove them when problems surface. We may become vulnerable out of a heartfelt desire to empower the gift of others.

Since prayer is a ministry of unanimous participation, it is wise to introduce protocol that ensure a safe ministry environment.
