(car-NAH-tuh-kuh) – Sound teaching is so important in the churches. Between much twisting of Scripture, the overwhelming proclamation of the prosperity gospel, or just listening to anything mentioning the name Jesus, the clarity of the true gospel and biblical integrity can be vastly overlooked. Please ask God to raise up pastors who will herald the inerrancy of Scripture and its sufficiency: Scripture is enough. Pray that He will guide leaders to look to Him and His Word with hearts that are receptive to hear the Word and become obedient followers and proclaimers of it. “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7:24 ESV). Pray that good, godly schools and teachers will be able to come alongside pastors to teach and train “the pattern of the sound words” (2 Timothy 1:13 ESV) and that listeners will seek to walk faithfully, proclaiming the gospel in their own homes, villages, and cities.
