Prayer is a significant aspect of your involvement in your local church’s worship every Lord’s Day. As you spend time today, preparing for tomorrow’s assembly, remember to pray for your pastor’s preaching. Take some time to look up the following Scriptures and let them influence how you pray. Your pastor will appreciate it more than you know.

  1. Pray for the Lord to open the hearts of the hearers just as He did for Lydia (Acts 16:14).
  2. Pray for the Lord’s victory over Satan’s opposition (Lk 8:12; 2 Cor 4:4)
  3. Pray for boldness and guidance in his choice of words (Eph 6:18-19)
  4. Pray for the Holy Spirit’s work of conviction & illumination in the hearts of listeners (Jn 16:8-11; 1 Cor 2:14)
  5. Pray for the power of the gospel to be unleashed (Rom 1:16; 2 Thess 3:1)
  6. Pray for the drawing power of the Father (Jn 6:44)
