I was praying for celebrities with birthdays today and saw Katy Perry on a birthday list. She turned 28 years old. Also, this morning while reviewing news headlines I saw an article about Jessica Simpson's parents getting a divorce. Do you know what these two singer's families have in common? Both of their dads have been pastors.
Jessica's dad was pastor of a Baptist church and Katy's parents are Pentecostal ministers. I can relate to these two women because my dad was a minister and I saw the conflicts and stress that happen behind the scenes in church life.
Please join me in praying for these families and that they will be able to deal with fame in a way that honors Christ. Also pray for Jessica's parents to resolve their differences and experience forgiveness and healing of any emotional scars.
