Peterburchard2006You often hear pastors ask the people in their church to pray for their city; but how often do you hear about the city praying for their pastors? 

Yesterday morning I was meeting with Jon at Starbucks for our weekly one-on-one and in walks Naperville City Manager Peter Burchard.  Peter is a great guy and is always interested in the continuing adventures of Community Christian Church.  So, we told him some of the latest and then he told us about some events in the life of the city.  But before he left he asked, “so how can I pray for you guys?” A couple things came to mind and so I told him.  And then standing right there in Starbucks he says out loud a prayer of blessing and ask God to give us wisdom.  How cool!
