Pray this morning for the pastors and leaders as they are gearing up for busy summers of outreach. Pray for a return to a focus on “first love” and the priority of His Kingdom.  Pray for endurance in each church as struggles and temptation are faced this week.  May these words of Jesus guide our lives and work this week.

I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear with those who are evil, but have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and found them to be false. I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for my name’s sake, and you have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first.”

 Revelation 2:2-5 ESV
