At CCEF, we’ve been thinking a lot about wisdom as we gear up for our 2022 National Conference: “The Way of Wisdom.” This verse from Proverbs is an encouraging and humbling reminder that it is only through the Lord that we may know wisdom and walk in it. The Lord has made this possible through the gift of his Son. It is only through relationship with Christ—the true wisdom from God, the only way of wisdom—that we may grow in wisdom.
Would you pray for us that we would continue to rest on Christ alone as our true source of wisdom and strength? We ask for prayer specifically for the many facets of our counseling ministry.
- The fall brings a rush of new activities and an increase in the counseling load for our counselors. Pray that the Lord would bless us to experience his love and faithfulness in our own lives as we seek to point others to his great compassion. Pray for stamina to sustain the increased pace and a steady investment in the lives of others.
- Our counselees face a variety of struggles in their lives, many of which have been exacerbated by the last couple of years. Please pray that the Lord continues to provide so that we can defray counseling costs for those who are most in need in this challenging season.
- We frequently have to turn people away due to limited capacity for our counselors. Pray that they would find the care they seek.
- The isolation caused by covid has taken a toll not only on our counselees but also on the sense of community in our Counseling Ministries department. Pray that we can find ways to connect as a group, encouraging each other in love and good deeds as we seek to serve our counselees well.
