So, for Pastor Appreciation Month, let me offer up 4 things that Paul requested prayer for that we can also use as prayers for our pastors at Three Rivers Grace.
- that I may be delivered from the unbelievers in Judea (Romans 15:30-31 ESV)
- that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For not all have faith. (2 Thessalonians 3:2 ESV)
Pray that the ministry will be well-received.
- that I may be delivered from the unbelievers in Judea, and that my service for Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints (Romans 15:31 ESV)
Pray that the Word of God would be effective.
- that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored, as happened among you (2 Thessalonians 3:1 ESV)
Pray for opportunities to speak the Gospel with boldness and clarity.
- that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison—that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak. (Colossians 4:3-4 ESV)
- that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak. (Ephesians 6:19-20 ESV)
