Month of Prayers for Your Clergy – Day 17

October is Ministry/Clergy Appreciation Month. What better way to show your gratitude and support than to pray for those in charge. Pray God’s name and word back to Him. He likes that.

Pastor’s Prayer Life

Romans 8:31, 34:…If God is for us, who can be against us? Jesus Christ (Messiah Yeshua) is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.

Isaiah 61:1: LORD Who Anoints Me to Preach Good News

How to pray: that Pastor’s quiet time before the Lord encourages him to persevere as he:

~worships God in the splendor of His holiness (Psalm 29:2);

~praises God for His attributes (Psalm 71);

~offers thanksgiving for God’s bountiful blessings (Psalm 26:7;107:22;Ephesians 5:20);

~exhibits an attitude of confession and repentance before God (Psalm 51:10) and an attitude of forgiveness for those who have grieved him (Ephesians 4:32);

~brings his petitions to God in complete faith that they will be heard and answered (Psalm 5:3;55:17);

~makes intercession for himself, family, friends, enemies and congregation (Ephesians 6:18);

~luxuriates in God’s unfailing love that surrounds him (Psalm 32:10).

Prayer/Blessing for you, the pray-er

Morning dawns. I enter my secret closet of prayer, closing the door on today’s cares. We commune. I listen and feed on Your words as I rest in You, my True Pasture (Jeremiah 50:7).

Praying God’s Name and Will for Israel

Your word says that You will make victory the inner and outer wall (Will: Isaiah 26:1). You also said You would set watchmen upon Jerusalem’s walls – people that would not be silent until You establish Jerusalem (Will: Isaiah 62:6,7). You are indeed Victory Giver (Psalm 144:10). Call forth watchmen from around the world that the sun not set on intercessory prayers for Israel’s peace and destiny. Guide them with Your wisdom that they may discern how to pray. Give them knowledge of Your word that they might pray back to You what You have promised so that those prayers may be pleasing to You.
