PRAYING FOR OUR PASTOR

"The pastor's role is not easy, and it isn't one that comes without opposition. 

 

As a pastor seeks to feed his flock God's Word, comfort them when afflicted, protect them from danger, and minister the gospel to their souls, he has a target on his back. The enemy knows that "striking the shepherd will scatter the sheep" (Mark 14:27). Pastors need to be on their guards against the world, the flesh, and the devil which can subtly-or not so subtly-lure them away from serving the God they love.

 

To stand firm in the ministry and fulfill God's calling, pastors need to be men and women of prayer and need the prayers of believers in their congregation. The Apostle Paul asked for prayer several times in his letters, for rescue from unbelievers (Romans 15:30-33), for a bold gospel proclamation (Ephesians 6:19-20), and that the word of the Lord would speed ahead and be honored (2 Thessalonians 3:1-2). If Paul needed prayer, our pastor does too!

 

Praying for our pastor is joining him in ministry. Prayers for our pastor and our church will strengthen the work being done and be a service to him."
