A Prayer for Pastors

O God, we pray this day for pastors who serve by the strength of having heard your calling and seeking to be faithful to your purpose. 
 
We are grateful for their gifts, their training, and their dedication that enable them to serve us and our congregations with obedience to their understanding of your will and leading in their lives.

We pray this day for a special blessing upon all those who are called to serve the church in this present age. Help them to be attentive to Your Word and to Your people.  By your grace grant them the power of renewed life that comes in serving You and Your Church. Grant them peace to replace the stress and joy to replace any frustration that is growing within them.  

Keep them safe and growing we pray in Jesus' name.  Amen
