How Can You Pray for Your Pastors and Church Leaders?

We’ve been looking at questions that we hope you will know the answers to. Here’s question #3: How can you pray for your pastors and church leaders?

Before I give you some way to pray for your church leaders, let me encourage you to check out this blog to see WHY it’s so important for you to pray for your leaders. 

Four Reasons Why You Should Pray for Your Pastor Daily

Please read that blog. We as pastors and church leaders need your prayers…desperately! I think if we understand why we ought to pray we will pray more often and more fervently.

So, here’s something specific to pray each day for your pastors, connect group teachers and other church leaders. And from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your prayers!

Monday –WALK (Matthew 22:37)

“Lord, may our Pastor/leader love you with all of his heart, and minister out of the overflow of a heart filled with Your Spirit.”

Tuesday- WORD  (2 Timothy 2:15; 4:1-2; Titus 1:9)

“Lord, keep our pastor’s/teacher's study time fresh and anointed, and bless the teaching of your Word to your church.”

Wednesday--WISDOM (Titus 1:9)

“Lord, grant our pastor/leader wisdom as he seeks your will in the leadership of your church.”

Thursday—WIFE AND FAMILY (1 Timothy 3:4; Titus 1:6)

“Lord, keep our pastor’s/leader's family strong, protect them from the enemy and give them a heart for you.”

Friday—WAY (1 Timothy 3:2-3; Titus 1:7)

“Lord, keep our pastor’s/leader's way and character blameless and above reproach, so that your name will be glorified and the church will be edified.”

Saturday—WITNESS (1 Timothy 3:7)

“Lord, guide our pastor/leader to live a life of good reputation before those outside of the church.” 

Sunday—WORK (1 Timothy 3:1)

“Lord, remind our pastor/leader of his calling, and may he serve with faithfulness, love and godliness.”
