“Faithful is He that calleth you, who will also do it.Brethren, pray for us.” 1Thess.5:24-25 ASV
The Lord gave me a burden for our Pastors last week. I put this prayer together for them. Please feel free to share it with others as we continue to lift them up in our prayers.
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for Pastors ________________, 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 revelation of your love and goodness continually. Let them always remember that they were chosen by you and you love them with an unconditional love.
Pour out the fullness of your Spirit upon them daily, so they will be able to accomplish all you have for them to do. Father, we are all human and we err sometimes, I pray that when they make a mistake, they will not withdraw from you because of that, but 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 with a Jezebel spirit, so they do not stray from your presence and 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 or dishonor to your name.
Give them a humble heart that will always cry out to you “Lord Jesus, accomplish your purpose through me, I no longer live but Christ now lives in me (Gal.2:20).” Shield and sanctify their 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. Father, I pray that they will fulfill their calling in Jesus name. I cover my Pastors and their families with the blood of Jesus and I seal my prayers with the blood of Jesus, in Jesus name Amen.
