Name three things that a pastor/church leader could start/do in the next two months to have a greater impact on their community.I would add something, though -- after you list those three, compare them to the things your church is actually doing.
One of the things I love about our church is that the pastor is always open to new areas of ministry. If you have an idea for something the church should be doing, you can always go talk to him. BUT you have to be ready to DO what you are suggesting. I've gotten a couple of assignments because of that, and I know others who now have a full-time volunteer position at the church because of it. So my challenge is to think of areas of ministry that will give glory to God rather than your church, suggest them to your pastor, and then roll up your sleeves and get to work.

(Luke 11:1 ESV)
We often don't know how to pray -- that much is obvious from our prayers. Usually, we throw up a quick "God please get me through this" or a "God please let this happen" or something like that. At meals, it's a quick "Thanks for the food" prayer. At bedtime, we teach our kids to do their "God Blesses."
The apostles were men of prayer -- read the book of Acts and that will become obvious to you.
