Prayer for Leaders

July 23, 2009

Abba, I come to You in Yeshua’s mighty name, asking You to protect Your leaders and their families. I know that some of them are under incredible stress and attack from the adversary. Please place a hedge of protection around them and restrain the adversary’s hands. Make his attacks and works null and void. Guard the hearts and minds of Your people.

Some have marriages that are under attack. I ask that You will strengthen them and comfort them. May they seek You first in all things. May they each esteem the other more highly than themselves. Help them to overlook offenses and to love each other with the love that You have for them. Give them Your wisdom. Remind them that they should be one another’s best friend.

Abba, I know that some are traveling, or about to travel. Please keep them safe and help their journeys to be productive and blessed ones. Comfort those who mourn. Rejoice with those who are rejoicing. Strengthen those who are weak and bring healing to those who are ill. Bring Your people alongside of them wherever they go.

May those of us who are in the body always pray for and support those of us who are in leadership. May we work together under one head…Yeshua…to do Your will on earth as it is done in heaven. Start with each one of us, Abba. Stir our hearts. Convict us. Bring us into obedience to You. May we forsake all the idols we hold so dear…all the things that we put before You in our lives. Show us the things that hinder our relationships with You and rid us of them. Help us to surrender fully to You. Amen and amen!

Oh, and Abba, one more thing. Please give Your leaders the discernment and strength that they need to deal with the wolves that infiltrating Your body. There are wolves in sheep’s clothing. I pray that the wolves will turn their hearts and lives toward You and be set free from the adversary’s POW camp. Release them from bondage, Abba, and cause them to be productive for You and Your kingdom. May they love You and glorify You!

If they refuse to turn to You, please expose them, especially if they are playing the role of one of Your leaders. Show them for who they are and help Your body to purge itself of the evil within. May Your leaders take bold, unflinching stances against sin while always remembering who they are and from whence they themselves came. May we ALL do that! Amen and amen!

    Indeed we have a God that we can turn to. Yes, praying for our leaders is so vitally important. The success of ministry is dependant on prayer, without it all will be done in the flesh.
