Appreciation Prayer For Pastor

Introduction

I’ve struggled in the past with feeling ungrateful for my pastor. I’m not sure if it’s because I don’t like to be vulnerable and it’s hard for me to say “thank you” or if I just haven’t realized the impact my pastor has had on my life. Whatever it is, I recently made an effort to change that by writing down a list of reasons why I am thankful for my pastor. The following is a prayer of appreciation as a result of what came out as I wrote this list:

I thank you, Lord for the life of our Pastor.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for the life of our Pastor. Thank you for his family, who are always there for him in times of need. Thank you for their love and support, which is so important to him as well as to all of us who benefit from his ministry. Please keep them safe and healthy through all the challenges they face in life and always allow them to grow spiritually under the guidance of Your Holy Spirit. We ask this in Jesus’ Name! Amen!

Help him to always be courageous and strong in faith.

The pastor is a leader in his congregation, not just a preacher. The pastor is the head of the church and he should be respected as such. He must lead by example, showing what it means to be faithful to God and strong in faith.

He should always stand up for the church, even if there are those who oppose him. He should never let fear keep him from being true to himself or from speaking out against those who would do harm to his flock.

May he find joy and happiness in the things that please you, O Lord.

  • May he find joy in your Word, O Lord.
  • May he find joy and happiness in the things that please you, O Lord.
  • That he may see your glory in all his work, and find satisfaction and contentment in it.
  • That he may be happy in his home life, with a devoted wife and children who fear you.
  • That he may be happy at church with those who gather there for worship of Christ our King.
  • And that he may find happiness among his fellow church members as they share fellowship together among themselves.*

Bless him with a long life on earth, that he may continually lead us in Your ways.

God, we thank You for the leadership of Pastor and his wife. We pray that Your favor be upon them and that they will be blessed with a long life on earth, that they may continually lead us in Your ways.

Amen

Help him to hear Your voice and be undaunted by challenges.

  • Help him to hear Your voice and be undaunted by challenges.
  • Help us to be good listeners, open to the Holy Spirit and the people we serve, lead and pray for.

Encourage him to be steadfast in prayer and never grow weary in serving You.

Encourage him to be steadfast in prayer and never grow weary in serving You.

As a pastor, he will be tempted to give up his prayer life because of the demands and pressures of ministry. He needs your encouragement more than ever as he commits himself to this task before God.

Inspire him to be an example to the flock, that we will follow the right way.

We ask that you be the example to us, and the flock will follow. We ask our pastor to lead by example in all he does, that we may be inspired and encouraged by his words and deeds. Inspire him to be an example to the flock, that we will follow the right way.

Let his heart overflow with compassion and love for all people, even as You have loved us, O Lord.

As you pray for your pastor, think about extending this love to the people around you. The Bible says that God loved us so much, He sent His son to die for our sins so that we could be reconciled with Him (1 John 4:10). That’s just one way we see how much He loves us and wants us to know it.

Love is a commandment from God (John 13:34-35), but it’s also an example of His character. In fact, 1 Corinthians 13 lists love as one of the fruits of the spirit—that is, characteristics or qualities that mark someone who knows Jesus as Lord and Savior (Galatians 5:22-23).

Doing good deeds isn’t enough—we must have compassion toward others in order to truly show love. It’s easy for us to get caught up in ourselves and what we want out of life without thinking about others’ needs or desires first. But when we forget about others around us, we forget about God’s heart toward them too!

Make him a blessing to many who are sick and afflicted, that they may rejoice over their healing.

  • Make him a blessing to many who are sick and afflicted, that they may rejoice over their healing.
  • Teach him how to pray for the sick so that he can bring them to you for healing, as he brings them before the throne of grace for forgiveness and cleansing from sin (see James 5:14).
  • Give him a special anointing for the sick, that when he lays hands on one who is ill in body or mind, you will heal them completely (see Mark 15:28; Acts 9:34-35).

Give him wisdom to guide the Church away from pitfalls and evil vices.

As a pastor, your duty is to guide the flock away from pitfalls and evil vices. This requires wisdom. The Bible says that wisdom comes from above, and that it is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, easy to be persuaded (James 3:17). This is not something you can do on your own; only God can give this gift to you. Ask Him for it today in prayer!

Help our pastor stand strong for you always

As a leader, your pastor needs to be strong in faith and courageous. He has the responsibility of leading a congregation through tough times, which can test even the most passionate believer’s resolve. Therefore, it is essential that you pray for your pastor to be happy and content with his life and work. He needs to hear your voice above all other voices around him so that he may stay steadfast in prayer despite distractions or opposition from within or without his church community.

You must also pray for your pastor’s family as well as any children he may have had at some point in time during his career. These are people who need guidance from their spiritual leader just as much as anyone else does—and yet they may not feel comfortable approaching him about such matters because he might appear too busy with other concerns (such as running an entire church). It’s important not only for pastors’ families but also for the churches themselves: if these relationships don’t work out well enough between pastors/their wives then there could be some serious repercussions later down the road!

Conclusion

We must honor our pastors and show them that we appreciate their efforts in serving God, so what better way than to pray for them? This prayer will help you to feel inspired by a pastor’s work as well as honor him or her in your own words. We encourage you to use it regularly.
