Prayer to Protect My Pastor:
Heavenly Father, we come to you today with grateful hearts, thanking you for the many blessings you have bestowed upon us. We are grateful for the gift of our pastor, and we ask that you would guide and strengthen him as he leads our church.
We pray that you would give our pastor a heart of humility, and help him to always put the needs of others before his own. May he lead with integrity, and always seek to serve and care for your people. Philippians 2:3 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.”
We ask that you would give our pastor wisdom and discernment as he makes decisions for our church, and help him to discern your will for us. May he be a faithful and obedient servant, always seeking to follow you and fulfill your purposes for our lives.
We also pray for our pastor’s family, and ask that you would bless and protect them. May they grow together in love and unity, and may they be a source of strength and support for one another.
God, we thank you for the gift of our pastor, and we pray that you would bless and guide him as he leads our church. May he always serve you with humility and integrity, and may he be a shining example of your love and grace to all those around him.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
Prayer to Guard My Pastor’s Heart:
Proverbs 4:23 “Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.”
Heavenly Father, today I am praying for my pastor. Lord, there is probably nothing Satan would like to destroy more than the leader of our church. My pastor has a sincere, humble desire to teach and preach the gospel of Christ. Because of this, I’m sure Satan has a target on him. I realize pastors are at the forefront of God’s onslaught against the kingdom of darkness. This makes a pastor in more danger than any other believer.
I lift up our pastor to you. I ask that you would protect his heart from any deceit, lies, or negative influences. I pray that you would surround him with your love and truth, and that he would stay grounded in your word. May the Holy Spirit continually infill him and guard his heart. I ask that you would give him the strength and wisdom to lead our church with integrity and passion. Keep him healthy and focused.
I pray that you would bless him and his family, and that you would use him to bring many people to know you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
1 Thessalonians 3:13: “So that he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.”
