Prayer for Pastors (1)

Dear Lord, we want to bring our pastors before you today (or pray specifically for a pastor as led by the Holy Spirit).

We thank you for them and for their obedience to heed the call of God upon their lives as shepherds over the flock in Penang First. We plead the blood of Jesus over them and their families, keeping them safe from accidents and sicknesses. We declare over them that Your very presence will be their firewall! Shield them against the fiery darts of the enemy by the strengthening of their faith.

We also pray that they will only hear the voice of the Good Shepherd and that the voice of the enemy which brings condemnation and confusion be silenced in Jesus’ name!
Lord, we ask that You will grant them discernment of Your good, pleasing and perfect will through the renewal of their minds by the Holy Spirit.1

Give them boldness and wisdom to walk out Your will in their lives, in every ministry, and in the church so that they will always be in full alignment with You.

Father, we also ask that they will have a fresh encounter with You, and their intimacy with You will go even deeper.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

  1. Romans 12:2, Ephesians 4:23

Why pray for your pastors? Our pastors and their families are just like us; they, too, need prayer, encouragement, strength and protection. Pastors are at the forefront of the spiritual battle; therefore, as a congregation, we must stand behind our pastors and pray for them and their families; here are a few prayer points for you to consider: 

  1. Protection (covering) for the pastors and their family members.
  2. Boldness, courage, and strength.
  3. Their health (physical, emotional, spiritual) and overall well-being.
  4. Wisdom and divine revelation as they minister to others.
  5. To minister from the power of the Holy Spirit; that utterance may be given to them.
