Scriptural Prayers For Pastors And Leaders.
God does not just call men into the ministry as leaders without a plan to make them grow in the ministry. It is in the plan of God to make us grow ministerially even beyond our imagination but before that can happen, every minister or leader is expected to live up to the standard of his or her calling and to keep his or her focus on Jesus Christ and press toward the mark of his or her calling. Philippians 3:14 “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”
The Ministry does not just grow without an effort, below is the list of things needed to be done to experience ministerial growth and enlargement.
Criterions For Ministers/Leaders.
- Prayer: This is the method through which we communicate with God. A minister of God must inculcate the habit of persistent communication with God to experience ministerial growth.
- Faith: This is required of every minister of God before they can access and experience any dimension of growth in their ministry.
- Diligence to Calling: As a minister of God, one important and vital thing to be done is to first identify the kind of calling and his area of calling and to be diligent in it. “2 Peter 1:10”
- Obedience to the Will of God: One primary aim of a minister/pastor/leader is obedience to the Will of God because this is the bedrock and foundation of his or her relationship with God.
- Evangelism: This is the great commission given to all ministers/pastors/leaders, hence for a ministry to experience growth then her main focus must be evangelism. The minister must possess the passion for lost souls and win then for Christ. “Mark 16:15”
