Too Much For One

Too much for one person,
God understands our need
for others to come alongside
and help to accomplish a deed.
Personal accountability
is given to each to learn
that if one is given too much
they can feel burned.
We are all His body.
The body has a head.
We must all work together,
not act brain dead.
Our leaders are so precious
that we need to help where we can,
if we want to keep
this godly woman or man.
Trust God to lead us
and show what is needed.
If it be His instruction,
may His word be heeded.

The Evangelistic Well

Preachers study so hard
to bring us God’s word.
Had he not been faithful,
we would’ve never heard.
Ministers serve so many
ministering to their church.
The faithful serving
helps heal the hurt.
Evangelists travel to tell
Jesus wants no one in hell.
Thank God for the evangelist
who shared from the well.

Help This Pastor and Wife

This flock of many burdened souls,
they trust them with their souls,
just as You have entrusted his leadership
to help them keep control.
This house of many mothers
look to her for heavenly advice,
just as You have given her leadership
to be the queen of nice.
This crowded building of Yours
is his for the moment You’ve shared.
Help him to be the man You want
as he has obediently chosen to care.
These eyes of those who search her
for answers to do the right.
God, help her to keep her sanity
as she strives not to lose sight.
This place is called a church.
These people Your congregation.
Help this pastor and wife.
Relay Your gift of salvation.
