Answering the call of a pastor puts a huge target on someone’s back in the spirit realm. The enemy doesn’t want them leading people to Christ. We may never know the amount of spiritual warfare that they face. This is why it’s important for us to pray for our pastors. If you pray this prayer, insert your pastor’s (or pastors’) name(s).
I lift my pastors up to you. I thank you for their lives. Thank you for calling them and leading them. They have taught and will teach so many. Bless them because they are bettering Your kingdom.
I pray that You continue to give them godly wisdom. Lead them not into temptation, but deliver them from evil. I pray that every life they touch will see the Holy Spirit through them. Cover them with your full armor, Lord, as they stand against the devil and his schemes.
No weapon formed against them or their ministry shall prosper. I bind and rebuke spirits of retaliation and any other wicked demon that tries to attack them or their families. A thousand will fall at their side and ten thousand at their right hand, but it will not come near them. No harm will come near their dwelling.
In Jesus’ Name,
