Prayer For Pastors
“Faithful is He that calleth you, who will also do it. Brethren, pray for us.” 1Thess.5:24-25 ASV
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for Pastor/s ________________, thank you for using them for your glory. They are your vessels set apart to do your will.
Lord, I pray that you will open the five senses of their spirit to receive directly from you at all times. Give them a revelation of your love and goodness continually. Let them always remember that they were chosen by you and that you love them unconditionally.
Pour out the fullness of your Spirit upon them daily, so they will be able to accomplish all you have for them to do. Heavenly Father, we are all human and we can err sometimes. I pray that when they make a mistake, they will humble themselves and ask for forgiveness.
You are a faithful, merciful, and forgiven God; help them to constantly remember your faithfulness and loving-kindness towards them. Strengthen their faith in you in times of trials or difficult situations. When they feel alone, give them the vision of your presence with them, because you have promised not to leave us or forsake us (Deut.31:6).
You said in your word do not touch my anointed ones and do no harm to my prophets(Psalm105:15), Father, I pray that you will keep them away from anyone that may want to mislead them. Help them not to stray from your presence and your purpose for their lives. Deliver them from enemies that are acting like friends (Psalm 55:12-14).
Protect them from counselors like Ahitophel (2 Sam.15:31). Give them good counselors who will speak your truth and your heart without compromise (Prov.11:14). Keep them safe from harm and any form of dishonor to your name.
Give them a humble heart that will always cry out to you for help in times of need. Lord Jesus, accomplish your purpose through them. Cover them under the shadow of your wings, protect their family, and sanctify their home/marriage. Reveal your love and greatness to their children; let your angels surround them at all times for they are the seed of the righteous(Prov.11:21).
Most of all, I pray that my Pastor(s) will not only speak your word but they will also be a doer of your word bringing glory to your Kingdom. Give them a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of who You are. Enlighten the eyes of their hearts as they continue in their journey with you.
Fill their heart with hope and your peace daily. Heavenly Father, I pray that they will fulfill their calling in Jesus’ name. I cover my Pastor/s and their families with the blood of Jesus and I seal my prayers with the blood of Jesus, in Jesus’ name Amen.
