Prayers of the People

PrayDr. Richard “Rick” Landon, a CBF-endorsed pastoral counselor, is the director of the Interfaith Counseling Center in Lexington, Ky. The Counseling Center is affiliated with Lexington’s Calvary Baptist Church, a CBF-partner church. The Center, which began in 1995, has eight therapists representing the disciplines of Clinical Psychology, Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy as well as Pastoral Counselors.

Individuals, couples and families make use of the Counseling Center, knowing they will receive professional counseling from licensed therapists and, if they desire, will be able to make use of their personal faith values and spiritual disciplines without having to subscribe to specific doctrinal formulations. Rick and his wife, Judy, work with CBF Global Missions as Member Care ministers relating to field personnel in Europe and Africa. Rick is also an adjunct professor with Baptist Seminary of Kentucky, a CBF-affiliated seminary.

Pray for all pastoral counselors, that they may be sensitive to the moving of God’s Spirit during every therapy session. Pray that the Spirit will bring to their remembrance education and training in order to reveal wisdom and guidance. Pray that all pastoral counselors would be mindful that every client who comes seeking their assistance is a unique creation and unconditionally loved by God, regardless of his or her situation or circumstances.
