Understanding And Praying For The Flock

Here are two resources that target both the issues facing your congregation and how you can go about praying for the work of the Holy Spirit in them. The first is a blog post:

The second is a very brief podcast (15 mins) that walks through how to pray for those in your church who may be acting more like raccoons than sheep.
