People nowadays often fill their schedules so they don't have a minute to spare. But what if your pastor asked you for five minutes -- five minutes a day for 10 days to pray for the church?
Pastor Paul Larsen did just that, asking members of Christ the King Lutheran Church of New Brighton, Minn., to join the "5-10 Club." Club members agreed to spend five minutes a day for 10 days praying that the congregation would move closer to the accomplishment of its mission.
Following is the invitation he sent, which included prayer starters, Bible passages and a heart sticker to place somewhere it will remind them to pray.

She also states: "I think that there is an underlying hostility to the people in the church who do give a lot of money."
She agrees that it is very important to say thank you.
