Faithful God, Keeper of promises, you keep your covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love you and keep your commandments. (Dt. 7:9) You are faithful in all you do. I praise you for who you are.
Thank you that your eyes are on the faithful in the earth. (Ps. 101:6) I give thanks that this includes my pastor _________.
Thank you that he proclaims Jesus as the Son of God, which gives him the victory to overcome the world! (1 Jn. 5:4-5) May he always lift high the name of Christ as the head over the church (Eph. 1:22) and not turn away from the truth, as many will in the last days. (Matt 24:10-14) I pray he will not be found among those who shrink back, but boldly proclaim Jesus as the Way, the Truth, and the Life and be found among those who believe and are saved. (Heb. 10:39)
I rebuke lies and false spirits from his mind and heart, O God, that he will proclaim you as the ONE true God, being able to say “I know no other.” Shield him from persuasive words of wise and persuasive men, (1 Cor. 2:4-5) as you anoint him in the power of Your Spirit – that he may glory in Christ and Christ alone.
I beseech you, Loving Father, to enable and urge __________ to test all spirits to see if they are from You and discern false prophets which go out in the world and come to attack his flock. (1 Jn. 4:1)
Protect _________ from the love of money and worldly things, that he may not wander from the faith and pierce himself with many griefs. (1 Tim. 6:10)
Grant, O God, to _________ a trustworthy and faithful mentor to guide him in the truth and offer accountability in grace. May he find a faithful friend like Barnabas to walk with him on the Way, that he might always consider their way of life and imitate their faith. (Heb. 13:7)
And now, Faithful and Just God, infuse your servant with courage, I pray, that he may be found faithful in the last days, able to hear “well done, thy good and faithful servant“….and receive that beautiful crown of righteousness you promise to all who keep the faith. (Matt. 25:21, 2 Tim. 4:7-8)
Praying for our PASTORS this week. Feel free to print and personalize. May we hedge in those who lead thousands – even millions all over the world in regards to their faith. May we cover those who will stand for the NAME of our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
