I pray dear Heavenly Father, that (your Pastor or Missionary) will sense your presence and be given wisdom, understanding and discernment today. Strengthen him/her by your great power that he/she will be encouraged and no matter what is happening he/she will be full of your joy. I give thanks to you dear Father for (your Pastor, their spouse and children, missionary). Hedge them from every attack of the enemy. I claim that everything they set their hands to do shall prosper and that they be kept in health. Colossians 1:9-11, 3 John 2, Psalms 1:3
What to pray for a protected Church
Thank you, Lord Jesus, that according to your Word you have promised to cover us with your feathers and under your wings we will find refuge. I pray that you will be a refuge and fortress to our fellowship, and deliver us from every attack of the evil one. Psalms 91:4
Pray for a loving Church
I pray that our church will be rooted and established in love. Help us to fully understand how wide and long and high and deep is your love. I ask, Lord Jesus, that we may express your love and become a fellowship completely filled and flooded with yourself. Ephesians 3:17-20
Pray for a worshipping Church
In your Word, Lord Jesus, you ask that we worship you in spirit and in truth. Craft our worship by your Spirit, I pray, so that it is an expression and an experience that will glorify you. I understand that when we worship you in truth, our words should reflect our lifestyle. Please forgive us for the times we have failed to do this and lead us, I pray, in truthfulness. John 4:24
A united Church
Father, you ask us to be imitators of you and to walk in your love, with humility, gentleness and patience, making allowance for each other. Oh Lord, may it be everyone’s desire in our church to be more like you, and to put to death the works of the flesh. I bind the enemy that would seek to plant seeds of envy, strife and division in our fellowship and I release love and unity, for your Word shows us that where there is unity you command the blessing. Psalms 133:3, Ephesians 4:1, Matthew 18:18
For a giving Church
You have said in Malachi 3:10 to test you with our giving, so that the promise of your abundance will become ours. Release, dear Father, into our fellowship cheerful givers, that we may know of your blessings and spread your Word throughout the world. 2 Corinthians 9:7, 2 Corinthians 9:8
What to pray for a fruitful Church
Father, be merciful and gracious to us and bless us. Cause your face to shine upon us and among us that your ways may be known throughout the earth. Give all within our church a passion to share your saving power, bringing deliverance and salvation to those who do not know you both here and among the nations. Psalm 67:1-2, Matthew 9:38, Matthew 28:18-20
