  • May Your power guide, deliver, and transform me in Jesus’ Name. 
Your Word also commands me to, “Obey my spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over my soul, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for my benefit.”

    • Give him discernment and wisdom to navigate challenges and make decisions that are in line with Your will. 
    • Your word says, 'the Lord is the strength of His people' (Psalm 28:8). Uphold my Pastor in moments of weariness and renew his strength. 
    • Help me to honor, respect and support those that my Pastor has appointed as leaders in the house of the Lord according to Your will.  Thank You for all the ways You use them to help me, encourage me, advise me and support me.

  • Lord, You appoint leaders according to Your purpose. I pray for Your guidance in their roles. Help them lead with justice, fairness, and wisdom.

  • Your Word assures us, 'The Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.' (2 Thessalonians 3:3, NIV) Protect them from lies and deception and give them sound minds as they govern your people.
