On Clergy Appreciation Day, I want to express my personal appreciation for the clergy at my church, All Saints Anglican: Father Chip Harper and Father Ed Morgan.
In a post on a previous Clergy Appreciation Day, I told more about these two men of God.
The Bible tells us:
Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. ~ Hebrews 13:7 (NIV)
One of the best things we can do for our clergy is to pray:
ALMIGHTY God, giver of all good things, who by thy Holy Spirit hast appointed divers Orders of Ministers in thy Church; Mercifully behold thy servants Father Chip and Father Ed and so replenish them with the truth of thy Doctrine, and adorn them with innocency of life, that, both by word and good example, they may faithfully serve thee in their Office, to the glory of thy Name, and the edification of thy Church; through the merits of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Holy Spirit, world without end. Amen.
