Megachurch pastor and popular author David Platt will hold a special night of prayer for pastors this week as some church leaders he’s spoken with during the COVID-19 pandemic have told him they are struggling more than ever.
“Most every pastor I talk to is struggling. Including some who don’t want to go on,” Platt, the lead pastor of McLean Bible Church in Vienna, Virginia, wrote on Twitter last Thursday.
“If you’re a pastor, I want to pray for and encourage you specifically.”
In a short video message included with his tweet, Platt says that pastors are struggling in a variety of ways.
“Some say [they are] struggling more than they’ve ever struggled in life and ministry,” he stressed.
