We have two elders who never attend our Wednesday Night Prayer meetings. They
are both very busy men and run their own businesses. They are on the city
council and never miss a meeting there. It's a matter of priorities. What
can I do to encourage them?
Maybe they don't want to come because they don't like the way the prayer meeting is organized or run. Possibly ask them what they would like to see in a Prayer Meeting.
Also, you may have a couple of elders who are not really qualified, and maybe not even saved, which is not unusual in many churches today--people just assume that they are and the person does too.Added to Bible Bulletin Board's "Tony Capoccia's Questions and Answers" by:
