After 19 years as a pastor’s wife, i know how challenging the work of ministry can be.
There are so many demands on pastors transfers from one place to another, frequent travels, hectic schedules, board meetings, funerals, intercessory prayers, conflict resolution among members. And that doesn’t include the insults and insinuations pastors suffer when they must make bold decisions to rightly protect the church and God’s name.
And as pastors’ wives we often suffer loneliness when the work takes them away from home for weeks and months.
As i’ve witnessed all these details, the idea of teamwork bothered me until i was impressed to support my pastor-husband with my prayers. When i shared this idea with him, he gladly embraced it and thanked me. Ever since, i have never ceased praying for him in all aspects of his ministerial work—even when he is preaching.
How could you pray for your husband? How could you give your spouse the unflinching support he needs most?
