Lord Help My Pastor
A pastor prayer poem
by, Patricia Bankhead
Lord help my Pastor, I pray
There are many obstacles in his way
Every burden help him to bear
Dear Lord, keep him in Your tender care
Give him strength and the ability
To care for the church and his family
Lord, there is so much he has to do
He can't do alone, he surely needs You
So shelter him in Your loving arms
Safe from all danger and unseen harm
Guard his mouth, his heart and mind
Remove every tittle of sin and pride
Keep him in the hour of temptation
May he not be moved by Satanís persuasion
Remove all fears, Lord, remove all doubt
By Your Spirit, Lord, be in his mouth
So that he'll speak a word that is due
And bring Your dear people closer to You
Regardless of what country we live in, our leaders need our prayer, not our criticism. And our spiritual leaders need our prayers, too. Thanks for sharing and reminding us that the Bible commands us to pray for our leaders and those in authority. If we all prayed more and criticized less, our countries would be better off. (I am a Canadian, so am saying "counties".
Amen, We all should be praying for our leaders.
Lord, Today I lift up the leader of our church who is struggling with back pain. Please take away this thorn in his side. Heal his pain. In Jesus's name Amen.
