Month of Prayers for Your Clergy – Day 11

October is Ministry/Clergy Appreciation Month. What better way to show your gratitude than to pray for those in charge. Pray God’s word and name back to Him. Also included today is a prayer focus for the congregation.

Pastor’s Spirit

Isaiah 57:15: For this is what the high and lofty One says – He who lives forever (inhabits eternity) whose name is Holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite (penitent) and lowly (humble; free from self-assertive pride; not pompous) in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.

Psalm 5:12: LORD Who Encompasses (surrounds, covers) the Righteous with Favor

How to pray: that Pastor’s spirit would be revived as he:

~basks in the Lord’s high regard and value of him;

~shows reverential fear as he receives the meaning of God’s revealed word;

~enjoys renewed freedom in serving the Lord.

Prayer for the Congregation

Job 34:21, 22: (God’s) eyes are on the ways of men; He sees their every step. There is no dark place, no deep shadow, where evildoers can hide.

Romans 2:16: Judge of Men’s Secrets

How to pray:

~that people will exercise complete honesty

~that God would break down the walls of secrecy

~that eyes would be opened to see their need for the Lord to rule in their lives

Prayer/Blessing for you, the pray-er

May I remember today to honor You with reverential fear deserving of One who is Enthroned in Heaven (Psalm 2:4).
