How to Pray for Your Pastor
“No Prayer-No Power; Little Prayer-Little Power; Big Prayer-Big Power”
Monday– PRAISE- After the highlight of spiritual battle and victory on Sunday, it is easy to be defeated.
Psalm 9:1 “I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.”
Psalm 145:3 “Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.”
Tuesday– PURITY- Tuesday is far away from Sunday and the devil knows it!
I Corinthians 6:18 “Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.”
Colossians 3:5 “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.”
Wednesday– PARENTING & PARTNERING- The devil puts a target on the pastor’s marriage and family.
Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it.”
Colossians 3:18 “Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.”
Thursday– PLANS & PREPARATION- Beginning to focus and mediate on Sunday’s message.
2 Timothy 2:15 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
Joshua 1:8 “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; mediate on it day and night.”
Friday– PROTECTION- Pastors are not exempt from worldly temptations.
Luke 22:40 “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.”
Matthew 6:13 “And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.”
Saturday– PERSONAL SABBATICAL- Ministry demands can make it hard to make time to unplug and refresh.
Deut. 5:12 “Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God.”
Hebrews 4:9 “There remains, then, a Sabbath rest for the people of God; for any who enters God’s rest also rest from their works, just as God did from his.”
Sunday– PREACHING- Proclaim the Word and not be distracted from speaking God’s Truth.
2 Timothy 4:2 “Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.”
Exodus 4:12 “I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.”
