Although that verse was written to Israel back then, we certainly can look to it when calling a Pastor, before and after church-wide prayer. The Apostle Paul fills us in on the type pastor we are to pray for. God is not going to automatically provide a Pastor today for a church that does not in utmost humbleness surrender to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
