The term “spiritual leader” inherently assumes that a leader is being guided by the Holy Spirit. If you are a pastor, this is your role within the church: a spiritual leader. While we understand that you already know the importance of prayer as a pastor, we want to assist you in maximizing your prayer life. As a pastor, you are expected to have a diligent prayer life. With that said, we encourage you to take a look at this video on pastors learning to pray.
You may be thinking, “I already know how to pray.” We believe you. It is because we believe that God calls people into ministry for a reason, that we want to teach on maintaining and sustaining your prayer life. Specifically, in the context of your gifts and your abilities, how are you using your prayer life? Does your prayer life truly allow God to move through the gifts he has given you?
