Praying for your area to have revival is good but praying for individual ministries and ministers is BETTER! The more specific you are in your prayers the faster they’ll come about happening. If you've never taken the time to pray for you pastor, church or ministry, let’s begin today! There are people in your life sent by God to help you, your family and region. Identify that ministry and individual minister then, pray.
The men and women of God in YOUR life should be honored. If you try to pick them apart and place them on a level of familiarity, you do yourself a disservice. 2 Corinthians 5:16 says, “So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.” Lots of people thought Jesus was just some Carpenter from Nazareth. Those who identified Him in the natural had natural results. But those who saw past the natural and into that perfect gift given to us by God Himself were SUPERNATURALLY impacted.
Prayer & Confession:
“Father I thank you for _________ (minister and ministry). Thank you for the impact they've had on my life. I lift them up to you today. I pray you would bless them in ways they thought weren't possible. Whatever it is that they're believing for, I ask for it to manifest this month, in Jesus name! I pray for their spouse and marriage, may it grow stronger and more unified every day. Bless their children. Protect them when they're in school and keep all manner of sickness and disease far from their midst. Strengthen their body, mind, and spirit. Give them supernatural insight on your Word. I curse every for of discouragement. Every negative word spoken against them and their family, let it be frustrated in Jesus name! Thank you for your hedge of protection round about them. May this year in ministry be most prosperous, more financially blessed they’ve ever had. In the name of Jesus!”
Have you taken the time to appreciate those who’ve impacted you in your spiritual walk? Send them a letter (or email), continually pray for them, give them a gift card, do SOMETHING to let them know you care. How about those who brought you to Christ? Give them a THANK YOU!
