Prayer For Pastors Scripture
2 Corinthians 10:3-5: For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
James 5:14-16: Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.
Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad (1 Kings 3:6-14)
The Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead lives in me [x]
So I do not speak with human wisdom or worldly excitement [xi]
Or rely on my own strength I count on the power of Almighty God.[xii]
As I teach I listen to the voice of God and invite others to listen too; [xiii]
As I serve I join the intercessions of the Holy Spirit, [xiv]
Praying that we all cry out with the Spirit, Abba Father! Jesus is Lord! [xv]
The Lord is glorious in all things and captivates me continually;
So I do not draw attention to myself, but to Jesus Christ alone;
Nor do I base my identity on what people say about me.
I am Christ's Ambassador; [xvi]
My citizenship is in heaven's kingdom; [xvii]
My message is simply: Follow me as I follow Christ! [xviii]
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Ps. 23:1-3
