30 Days of Prayer Points for Pastors
Praying for pastors is so important that God commands it.
In Hebrews 13:17-18 Paul said, "Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account, so that they can do this with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you. Pray for us; for we are convinced that we have a clear conscience, wanting to conduct ourselves honorably in everything."
Pray for Pastors
To have insight into scripture and an understanding of how it applies to people today.
To have protection from the works of Satan.
To have a soft heart in the face of disappointments and abusive people.
To continue to grow spiritually.
To have a successful ministry – however God defines success.
To have boldness to speak the truth with love, and the grace to speak it with humility.
To persevere through whatever trial he is facing.
"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." Galatians 6:9
To remain pure, and that their love for their spouse would increase daily.
The following Prayer Points can be personalized by saying their name instead of the word pastor. Or you can pray these points for all pastors.

1. Holy Spirit of God, give pastors courage to stand strong in their call. When they feel weak and fatigued, refresh, renew, rebuild and re-establish them in their journey.
2. Establish them in Your will and may they become products and the result of Your Word in action.
3. As You speak into their lives, manifest Your Presence on earth everywhere they go.
4. Let them be a living expression of who the Word of God says they are.
5. Fill them with the Word of Life this day.
6. Release more of Your joy into their lives as they serve.
7. Here their cry and let them know that their concerns are Your concerns. Let Your glory reign in their lives
Freely I give, let them receive in Jesus Name!
Prayer Points for Day 2
Prayer Points for Day 2:
1. Precious Lord, let the Word of God in this pastor not be in ink, but by the Spirit of the Living God. Let it not be written on tables of stone, but let Your Word be written within their heart. You have given them a specific assignment by which they MUST shine. Show them Your surplus mercy.
2. Let Your Word be quickened in their spirit and always keep them alive and well, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Let anything that is not of You be uprooted from them, in Jesus' Name!
3. Continue to equip them with Kingdom leadership skills, abilities and passions that surpass their spoken and unspoken opposition(s).
4. Renew their covering in You daily, so others may see and experience the Spirit of Christ in their lives. I pray that they be duplicators of Christ so they may produce much fruit!
5. Increase and connect resources to them that will help them fulfill the call upon their lives. Let them drink new wine and fresh bread from heaven as they continue in their walk of faith.
6. I release the shield of faith into their lives that cannot be penetrated by the powers of this world. They shall possess their possessions in accordance to Obadiah 1:17
7. I pray that in this day the blessings of the Most High God would be operational in their lives. Release greater power through them to heal, lift up, encourage, and manifest Your righteousness above human understanding.

Prayer Points for Day 3
Prayer Points for Day 3:
1. Lord, let these pastors know they will never be an image of failure. Let them be fashioned after Your likeness. Let them walk as the head and not the tail. Let them salt the earth this season.
2. Where doubt may appear, fill their atmospheres with excellence to keep them encouraged!
3. The Word of God has made them a brazen wall, a fortified city, an iron pillar and their appearance shall terrify the enemy every time! Any battle(s) they or any family member face this week is already won!
4. Remind them that when the enemy hears the sound of their voice, he shall tremble and feel much pain! As the Word of God is released from Your mouth, the authority of God shall bring public victories.
5. Every curse of untimely death and destruction against God's ministers shall return to the sender void and unfulfilled.
6. This pastor's calling shall not be aborted. They shall complete their purpose in ministry with fire.
7. As they wear the coat of humility, I pray that any plot against their lives and ministry shall be exposed and uprooted from their lives! Let all their heavenly assignments be completed, in Jesus' Name.
Make it happen, Lord! Make it happen!
* * *
On persevering prayer: "I look at a stone cutter hammering away at a rock a hundred times without so much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the 101st blow it splits in two. I know it was not the one blow that did it, but all that had gone before."

Prayer Points for Day 11
Prayer Points for Day 11:
1. I thank You, Lord, for staying power in these pastors. "He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved" Psalm 62:2
2. Many times they are attacked and experience feelings of satanic bombardment. Many times they feel like a ship without a sail. But it is written in Your Word that You, and only You, are their rock and salvation.
3. You are their defense when they experience moments of being misunderstood. I pray that during low and challenging times they would be lifted to higher ground.
4. Fire of God, renew their strength with the righteousness of Your right hand. Let them stand and not be moved from their divine post, in Jesus' name.
5. Oh Lord, use these pastors to demonstrate the power of Your hand by releasing life changing miracles, divine healings, unexplainable wonders, and jaw dropping signs of Your presence.
6. You are truly the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Release Your fresh anointing upon them, in Jesus' name.
7. Oh Lord, I pray not their will but Thine will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give them their daily bread as I speak life into their dry areas.
8. Give them a glimpse of the open doors You have aligned for them. Holy Spirit of God, speak to them as they approach every door and give them the courage to go through. Cover them in the blood of Jesus as they encounter opposition.
9. Render to every pastor according to their works. "Do not trust in oppression and do not vainly hope in robbery; If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them. Once God has spoken; twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God; And loving kindness is Yours, O Lord, for You recompense a man according to his work." Psalm 62:10-11
10. Thank You, Lord, for the countless hours they spend with You. Thank You for their willingness to go through gates to set up a standard for the people.
11. May they press toward the high call of becoming holy and maintaining holiness.
Because of Jesus, many have answered the call, praise His name, praise His name.
* * *
"Go through, go through the gates,
Clear the way for the people;
Build up, build up the highway,
Remove the stones,
lift up a standard over the peoples.
Behold, the LORD has proclaimed
to the end of the earth,
Say to the daughter of Zion,
'Lo, your salvation comes;
Behold His reward is with Him,
and His recompense before Him.'
And they will call them, 'The holy people,
The redeemed of the LORD';
And you will be called, 'Sought out,
a city not forsaken.'" Isaiah 62:10-12
* * *
