    Not that there is quite a fantastic list. My prayer is that people read this and put it into action.

    I am a former licensed minister and a member of the preaching team of a small church here in western Kentucky. On Sundays I am preaching, I go to church early, practice my sermon and make last minute changes, practice the songs we will be singing, and pray for the church and its revival by the Holy Spirit, for those who will be attending the worship service, and those who for whatever reason will be absent Except for practicing my sermon and making changes, I do this also on the Sundays I am not preaching. I make a point of greeting any visitors and chatting with them.
