Dave Crocker

Today we hear from Dave Crocker, our deacon over education. He has listed several verses that we can pray through as we lift him and his ministry to the Lord. This is an excellent example of how we can be praying in a God-honoring and extremely worthwhile way. He said that the lines which are bold and italicized are the specific prayer requests.

Dave also asked that we keep his wife in prayer, as she is not a believer.

Heb 13:15 – 25 (NASB)

15Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.

16And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

17Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you.

18Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a good conscience, desiring to conduct ourselves honorably in all things.

19And I urge you all the more to do this, so that I may be restored to you the sooner.

20Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord,

21equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

22But I urge you, brethren, bear with this word of exhortation, for I have written to you briefly.

Matt 9:36 – 38 (NASB)

36Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd.

37Then He said* to His disciples, The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.

38“Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”
