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

You are Author and Finisher of Our Faith. There is no lack in You or for those who trust and worship You. (God’s name found in Hebrews 12:2)

Praying God’s Name

Regardless of outside circumstances and inward feelings, at all times I choose to bless You with my words and glorify You with my deeds. You are Worthy of Worship. (God’s name implied in Psalm 95:6)
