“Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the leadership, direction, spiritual mentoring and wisdom that the pastor provides for his flock. The responsibility of this position is a serious one. This position is attacked daily by the lies and temptations of the evil one.
As a congregation that reaps the benefits of the wisdom and spiritual revelations from this man of God, we have a united responsibility to not only pray for his protection, but to also pray for his strength to endure the attacks of the enemy.
Lord, thank you for our pastor. Please bless him and his family in health, finances, wisdom and favor.
Speak to him in a powerful way so he can guide us clearly in the direction of your will for us as individuals and as a corporate body that desires to serve you.
When it is time for the pastor to preach, anoint him with your words and revelations. Open our ears to hear and our attention spans to absorb all the wisdom that we need from every message that he speaks.
Bless him in his study and prayer time to be filled with your joy and presence.
When he sleeps, give him a good restorative sleep so he can be strong for the job you called him for.
The flock is only as strong as the shepherd who leads. Let the sheep of this congregation be led to the refreshing revelations of your word. Bless the fellowship and unity of this local body of Christ to not only affect our community, but to reach out and bless other ministries that are spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ precious name, bless our pastor and every person who needs the wisdom you give him, Amen.”
A special thank you to www.faithalivefellowship.org and pastor Thomas C. Terry for his gentle yet powerful leadership and humble service to the body of Christ.
