Here are prayer points for ushering department you can use to pray.
Did you know that the ushering department in your church needs prayer as much as any other person, unit and department in church?
In short, they need more prayer than you think.
Did you ever hear this saying: ‘first impression matters?’
Yes, your ushers give the first impression of your church and ministry to worshipers.
They are the first contact with worshipers in every service; from the church entrance doors to the isle and down to the seat where worshipers will sit, you can be sure that there will be an usher that will welcome, lead and eventually get the worshiper to his or her seat.
That’s how important the usher’s work is.
The order or orderliness in your church meetings and services depends on them; on how good and effective they do their job.
Now, here’s something you must not forget: seeing that the ushers are the first contact in your church services and meetings, that automatically also makes them the first to get caught in Satan’s plan and attack on the church.
Should, God forbid, that gun men invade your church during a worship service, you can be sure that ushers will be the first to go down before any worshiper, that’s how serious, delicate and vulnerable their work make them.
That’s why you must pray for ushers in your church very well.
