Prayer is a spiritual exercise that every disciple of Christ must carry out at all times. As a spiritual discipline, it is not when it is convenient that prayer should be said. The Bible enjoins us to pray without ceasing. This means that we should pray regularly and anywhere (1 Thessalonians 5: 7). Pastors and other ministers of God also need prayers. It is important to pray for them because the burden is upon them. Remember that they are angels; blood runs in their body system as you. They need our commitment in their prayers. Thirty (30) prayer points have been worked upon for ministers of God and their ministries. Pray them seriously.
