Pray for Your Pastor

Pastors and leaders need prayer. The weight of responsibility they carry is crushing at times, and the very nature of their roles makes them a constant target for the enemy. 

The Apostle Paul often asked people to pray for him. He recognized the power of agreement in prayer, and knew he needed it!

Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored, as happened among you, and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For not all have faith. (‭2 Thessalonians‬ ‭3‬:‭1-2‬ ESV)

When you pray for pastors and spiritual leaders:

  1. Pray that the Word of God is clearly expressed and readily received. God’s word is the truth that sets people free. The gospel without the Word of truth can, at best, produce a superficial and temporary social justice. God’s word changes people from the inside out. 
  2. Pray that spiritual leaders are delivered from satanically manipulated “people problems.” Not all people problems are satanic, but some certainly are. By far, most ministers love people and tend to defer to them in order to minister to them; but occasionally satan uses people to steal a minister’s joy, time, or peace. A minister needs discernment!

Pastor and leader- today I am praying for you. You are not alone. God is at work, even when you are at a dead end. Your labor in the Lord is not in vain, and your ministry matters! Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might!

Believer- set a daily reminder to pray for your pastor and spiritual leaders. You will be blessed when they are strong and refreshed!
