Praying for Sermon Impact On an Individual Level

This morning on the way to the office I heard a great podcast about preaching and praying.  Every week I pray over the sermon and I pray about my preaching and I pray for the people at church.  But what this podcast was talking about is the power of praying specifically by name for the sermon to impact each individual at church.  This might seem obvious, but it never occurred to me!

In other words, if the sermon is about money, I can pray for Hank that God would provide employment, for Susan that she would be generous with her huge new raise, for George that he would get his debt under control, for Rachel that she would trust God enough to tithe, etc….

What an awesome idea!
