Dear Heavenly Father, I come before You thanking You for Pastor _________________ and for calling Him to lead in our church. I pray that You would grant Him daily Wisdom, Insight, and Discernment as he leads our congregation. I pray your hedge of protection around him, his wife, and his family that no harm or injury would come upon them. Please protect him from the many temptations that could assault him. Protect him from people who would seek to hurt our church by hurting him.
Lord, please guard his heart, his mind, his body, and his time and he seeks Your best for our church. Send him divine encouragement and divine appointments each day. May he exercise great faith, hope, and love as he leads. Please grant to my pastor a holy boldness to preach Your Word without compromise and in love to our church. May his only desire be to please You and do Your will. I pray that You will surround him with godly men who will counsel and sharpen him. Lord, when criticism comes his way, may it not distract him. When praise comes his way, may it not cause him to be over-confident.
Holy Spirit, I pray that he will daily seek to be filled with You and that Your anointing will be upon him. Bless his marriage and strengthen it. Bless his children. May he always make his family his priority. Help my pastor to be sensitive to where You want our church to go and to make the things that are most important to You important to him and our church.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
