Prayers for Our Pastors
Lord, I come to You on behalf of the Pastors of our community today. I pray that each one will dwell in the shelter of the Most High and rest in the shadow of the Almighty. May their declaration be: “Lord, YOU are my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.” (Psalm 91:1-2)
Lord, help each Pastor in our community to trust in You with all of their heart and not to lean on their own understanding. Help them to submit to You in all of their ways so that You can make their paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5,6)
Lord, I pray that the Pastors of our community would come together in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ . Bring Holy Spirit agreement with no divisions among them so that they would be perfectly united in mind and thought for the sake of the fulfillment of Your Great Commission. (1 Corinthians 1:10)
Lord, help the Pastors of our community to present themselves to You as those approved, workers who are not ashamed but who correctly handle the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)
Lord, thank You for Your faithfulness! Please strengthen each Pastor in our community and protect them and all that concerns them from the evil one. (2 Thessalonians 3:3)
Lord, fill our Pastors with joy and peace as they place their trust in You each day. Cause them to overflow with hope by the Holy Spirit that will draw others to you. Empower them to be bearers of Your Good News. (Romans 15:13)
(add your own prayers…) In Jesus’ Name, AMEN.
