Praying for Jay Collier

Be praying these things for Jay Collier, our newest elder among Mambrino Baptist Church.

  1. A gospel minister is made competent by grace

Pray for Jay to depend on grace to do the work among us and not on his own intellect. Pray for Jay to boast in his weakness and depend on grace. He will be tempted to fear because of his weaknesses. Ask God to make his grace known to Jay.

  1. A gospel minister ministers the gospel

Pray for Jay to deliver the gospel like a faithful workman. Pray for him to be a skilled master builder working always with the gospel. May God help Jay apply the gospel to the unbeliever and believer.

  1. A gospel minister is aware of Christ

Pray for Jay to boast in and depend upon Christ.  Pray for Jay to work by the power of the Holy Spirit. The only way Jay is going to make it as a pastor among us is if he is aware of how the Father, Son, and Spirit make him competent for this work.

  1. A gospel minister is fruitful

Ask God to use Jay to bring many sons and daughters to faith in Jesus Christ. Ask God to use Jay to disciple believers, reconcile family members, heal marriages, and instruct the saints.

  1. A gospel minister is ambitious

Ask God to give Jay clarity concerning the work he needs to do among us. There is much to do. What is Jay’s role? Pray and ask God to show Jay how to please Christ as he works among us.
