45 Intercessory Prayers For Our Pastors
Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;
Our pastors have sacrificed their time to uphold us in prayers, do everything to bring out from captivity and release supernatural blessings unto us. for this purpose, it’s very important we make intercessory prayers for our pastors.
It doesn’t matter whether the spirit of God is with him or not, or whether he’s in good standing with God or not, at any point in time, our pastors needs our daily prayers. If there is anything pastors needs from the church, it is the consistent prayers of the church members. The 45 intercessory prayers will help the pastor and the church growth.
Would you allow a Godly ministry to perish just like that because the head polluted everything? Oh no. The mercy of God is there to bring us back. The truth is, pastor needs the following: They need prayer of strength. They need prayers of spiritual growth, they need prayer for grace, they prayer for protection, they needs prayer for fruit and gift of the spirit. They need prayer of protection of their ministries from death. They need prayer of repentance and revival.
The pastor is the head of the church, and once the head is under attack, it affects the church members that connects to his anointing. One thing many people don’t know about intercessory prayer is this, when you intercede for people especially those that needs your blessings, you are invariable praying for yourself.
When you make intercessory prayers for pastors, God might use you to save him and his ministry. For example, when you make warfare prayers against powers fighting against your pastors, Or perhaps you feel your pastor had committed sins, or you feel the pastor is not doing his best as a leader, at this point right now, perhaps you want the Holy Spirit to help the pastor wins every battle (temptation, conspiracy, attacks) that confronts him and or his church members.
The Bible says, men ought always to pray and not to faint. When you see your pastor being accused, or attack, you may need to show him love by commanding the angels of God to rescue, protect and restore his lost glory. The same approach happens to Job in the Bible when he took his time to pray for his friends.
Do you know of any pastors whose ministries are under spiritual attacks? Do you know of a pastor that has lost or fallen from grace? Do you know of any churches gradually drying or losing the power of God?
Or maybe you notice a pastor who is terribly sick or committing any sin? Do you have series of nightmares for your pastors that shows that the ministry is demonically attacked, manipulated and polluted? If yes is your answer, then you need to make some intercessory prayers for your pastors.
Look at the role of the pastors to churches was sighted in Luke 4:18-19, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Once the pastors are struggling with any of these highlighted virtues in his ministries, then it is safe to say there are big problems confronting him, and for God to revive and restore him back, then we need to join hands and pray for them. The Bible says, the church will march on, and the gate of hell will not prevail against it, in Jesus name. The work of a pastor is the work to shepherd the people under their guidance and anointing.
There are some people that will never give up until they see some pastors or ministries goes down and stop flowing with God’s power. Some people wants churches to fail, crumble, or stagnate immediately they leave or stop going to the church because of something they had observed or the oppression they had gone through.
The truth is, if you truly love the work of pastors, then you may need to make some intercessory prayers for them because if you do, I am very sure the Lord will also send angels to give you victory, protection and good control over some evil forces militating against your own ministry.
The truth is, we all have different kind of ministries God has placed before us. Some are ministry of singing, ministry of motivating people, ministry of evangelism and so on. Prayers for pastors and churches are uncommon prayers; Also the warfare prayer on pastors will heal, restore, save and transform you and that pastor under satanic attacks.
