Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. Acts 20:28

In the natural realm law enforcement and other types of security details are on the front lines for us. In the spiritual realm pastors and church leaders are on the front lines for us. The Bible is clear that the Church is a target. All over the world Christian churches are facing physical violence. However what is unseen, and often unspoken, are the spiritual attacks on our leaders.

Pray the listed items and as you are led by the Holy Spirit:

  • Pray for Christian pastors and leaders and their families for protection spiritually and physically.
  • Pray for safe and healthy relationships where pastors and leaders can share their struggles and be encouraged.
  • Pray for stamina and perseverance.
  • Pray against spirits of oppression and instead be filled with the fruit of the Spirit of Joy.

Pray for us and yourself:

  • Pray for us to be diligent in carrying one another’s burdens and to remember to pray for our pastors and leaders.
  • Acknowledge to God any weaknesses in this area and confess any sin that may be in your way.

Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you. Hebrews 13:17
