How to Pray for Your Pastor

People in our church often let me know they are praying for me, and I am deeply grateful. Sometimes people ask for specifics on how they should pray for the pastor. At a recent meeting with our church’s Pastor’s Prayer Partners, we gave out the following acrostic with the prayer needs of a pastor:

  • Personal life—walk with God, family
  • Administration—counseling, leadership
  • Study—time, message preparation
  • Trials—grace, growth
  • Oversight—church ministries, care for the flock
  • Resources—strength, wisdom, building projects





I’m very thankful for the intercessory prayer of our people. James 5:16 promises, “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much”!
