Eight Ways to Use Scripture to
Pray for Your Pastor

1. Pray that he would conduct himself wisely in a life of obedience that remains above reproach (1 Timothy 3:2)

2. Pray that he would love and be faithful to his wife (Ephesians 5:25-33)

3. Pray that he would raise his children in the fear and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4)

4. Pray that he would love the Lord with all his heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30)

5. Pray that he would faithfully shepherd the flock of God (1 Peter 5:1-3)

6. Pray that he would flee temptation (1 Thessalonians 4:3-8)

7. Pray that he would be a man of unceasing prayer (Ephesians 6:18)

8. Pray that he would bind himself to the Scriptures and commit himself to expounding the Word of God rather than his own opinions (2 Timothy 4:1-4)

“A commitment to expository preaching takes a firm belief in the power of God’s Word and a humble recognition that the God-appointed means of preaching is better than whatever impressive or efficient model we might devise.”
