Prayer for Pastors (10/26/2017)
Hi! Welcome back to Shaking the Heavens! We’re glad you’re here again with us today.
Father God, we lift up all of the pastors, all of the heads of churches across all of the world. We lift them up to you, Father God. Father, we ask that you release them from the burdens of maintaining a church. Father, that you fill it with a joy of serving You and walking in their calling. Father, we ask that you pour out your blessings on them, that you pour out your provision on them, that you pour out your abundance like never before. Father, lift up those leaders to new levels of knowing you. Let them know you in a deeper way so they can be a shepherd to your sheep as you have called them to be. Father, we ask that you bring people around them, that you bring people into the house to serve, to serve with vision, the vision of the church, of the house that you gave the pastors, that you gave the leaders. Father, that you would bring people with that vision, with that passion into there, to run it, as you see it to be for each area because, Lord, we know each church is so important for each area, for each person that attends there. That’s why you have placed them there. Father, we ask that you build up, that you lift up, your house the way you want it to be, not the way the pastor wants it, the leaders want it. But the way You want it. And that you bring the people in to serve under them, to help them, to remove the burden so that they can do their jobs and preach your wonderful, glorious Word. Father, we just ask that you put a heart into them, put a new heart, increase your passion into them. Lord, if they’ve lost it, restore it, renew it, and bring your church united, to become THE church of this time, the way you want it to be. And, Lord, those leaders that are there just to pass the time, that don’t want it, we ask that you remove them and that you bring new people in that have a heart, that have a passion for You and Your Word, and to shepherd their sheep. We just ask for more blessing on them, more love into them, more passion into them, and release them from that burden. We thank you for raising up the leaders that you want to shepherd your sheep. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Well thank you for Shaking the Heavens again with us today. Share this with everybody and make the Word of God, the prayers of God’s people go viral help unite the Body of Christ as One, as we’re to be. We’ll see you tomorrow.
