I am excited about hearing what the Bible has to say about things and long to understand God's Word properly. I pray for my Pastor before he preaches and during his preaching, because he goes on "rabbit trails." Is there anything specific that I can pray or do to help him focus on his message, and not wander off topic? I am not an Elder, and it would not be appropriate for me to "council" or "correct" my Pastor. --Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12 I long for our our Pastor to be able to feed his flock well from God's Word.

First pray for him. Also, pray and ask God if this the appropriate church home for you. Ask God if your growth is indicating you may be ready for another position. AGAIN, PRAY FIRST.
