31DaysofPraying4YourPastor

Key Word/Phrase: Pleasing God, Not People

Key Scripture: Galatians 1:10, Proverbs 29:25

For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

Prayer Guide for Church Members:

“God, make my pastor a man who seeks to please only You. Keep him focused on speaking and acting exactly as You lead him to- no matter the outcome. Give him grace to be gentle, yet to stand firm when he is under pressure from criticism or controlling people. Help him to recognize the trap of people pleasing, and to avoid it. Compass him with safety when he trusts in You, even if his leadership or decisions aren’t popular. Keep him from being distracted by the many opinions of people. Let him be a man who is worthy to be Your servant because he lives before an audience of One.  God, make my pastor a man who seeks to please only You. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
