Key Word/Phrase: Calling to ministry

Key Verse: 1 Timothy 1:12

Prayer Guide for Church Members:

“God, I thank you for calling my pastor into the ministry and to our church. Thank you for gifting him through your grace to be one of Your servants. Thank you for counting him faithful to study, to proclaim Your Word, and to lead Your people.  Keep him aware of Your calling on His life, but also keep his eyes open to the fact that he is first called to You as one of Your children. Compel him to love and serve You out of a heart that adores Your character.  And never let him forget that it is You Who enables him. Let his life be a feast of grace that results in a table of godliness that others can glean from. Let his character emulate Yours, and let his ministry be a light to the lost world, and a home for believers within Your church.  Keep my pastor set apart for You, wholly committed to the life You have called him to, even in the face of trial, opposition, and sacrifice.  Bless him richly with spiritual blessings and confirm Your will to Him as he walks in Your way. God, I thank you for calling my pastor into the ministry and to our church. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
