Pastor Refuses To Pray For A Tithe Paying Member Of His Congregation?!?
Church, this is heartbreaking, to say the least, I’ve never heard of a minister denying someone prayer, especially a tithe “paying” member of the church. I'm guessing he thought she hadn’t been “paying” her tithes since she wasn’t in the church building. Check out how this son came to his 72-year-old mom's defense after her pastor of 20 years refused to pray for her. Y'all we got to do better.
My mom, who is 72 and has underline health conditions, has been practicing social distancing to prevent contracting COVID-19. Her primary social circle is her church, where she's been a member since 2001 and gives over $14K a year in tithes and offering. (I did her taxes, so I've verified this.) But during this pandemic, she attends church virtually; however, this morning, thoughts of loneliness and other culminating factors led her to be overwhelmed with sadness. Accordingly, she told me she was going to the church to do two things: pay her tithes & offering and ask her pastor to pray for her and he refused.
