Month of Prayers for Your Clergy – Day 18

October is Ministry/Clergy Appreciation Month. What better way to show your gratitude and support than to pray for those in charge.

Pastor’s Spirit

1 Corinthians 2:12: We have received…the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.

1 Corinthians 6:17:…he who unites himself with the Lord is one with Him in spirit.

Hebrews 12:9:…submit to the Father of our spirits…

Job 33:4: Breath of the Almighty (Shaddai) Gives (Sustains) Life

How to pray: that Pastor always remembers he is a reflection of God, son of Abba Father:

~in showing compassion (Exodus 34:6);

~in his own uniqueness (Isaiah 45:5);

~by defending those in need (Isaiah 51:22);

~by showing no partiality (1 Timothy 5:21);

~in glorifying and rejoicing in God (Zephaniah 3:17; John 17:4, 22);

~in holy living (Hebrews 12:10, 14);

~in enduring hardships (Hebrews 12:7).

Prayer/Blessing for you, the pray-er

Today You set before me the path that I am to take. May I not disappoint You for the trust You place in me to represent You, My Glory (Psalm 3:3).

Prayer for the Congregation

1 Kings 8:6:…your hearts must be fully committed (true, wholehearted, wholly devoted) to the LORD our God, to live by His decrees (statutes, ways, laws, regulations) and obey His commands (commandments)…

Ezekiel 36:26: Giver of a New Heart and a New Spirit

How to pray: that God would:

~draw the hearts of the congregation to Himself;

~put His Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) in them that would cause them to follow His laws;

~make His will known to the people so they could walk in His ways.
