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. Give them the boldness and courage to stand for the things of your heart and your Kingdom. I pray that no weapon formed against them will prevail, and every tongue that rises against them in judgment will be condemned (Isa.54:17).

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 sometimes we err. I pray that when they make a mistake, they will humble themselves and ask for your 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 a 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.

Be their strength in times of weakness. Meet them at the point of their needs. Lord Jesus, please accomplish your purpose and your will 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 hearts with your love, hope, and your peace daily. 

I cover my Pastor/s and their families with the blood of Jesus.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen!
