”And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written,
‘He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.’”
– 2 Corinthians 9:8-9

Day 26 – Provision in Times of Need

From physical needs to spiritual needs, we can often forget that pastors and their families also go through times of need. As we continue to pray for our pastors and display appreciation for them, let’s consider how we can encourage them in times of need, whether that be physical, emotional, or spiritual support.

Here are a few ways to pray for your pastor:

  • Belief in the promises of scripture that the Lord provides for His children
  • Trust that the Lord is good in times of need
  • Willingness to vocalize times when they are in these seasons

Prayer Prompt

Lord, I pray that my pastor (for a church member)/ I (as a pastor) will trust in You to provide in times of need for him and his family. Give him the confidence in your goodness and promises to provide and a willingness to display vulnerablitity when necessary…

*These prayers are a part of our series of prayers for pastors during Pastor Appreciation Month. A new prayer will release every morning throughout the month for pastors and their members to reflect on and pray.

How does God's Word impact our prayers?

God invites His children to talk with Him, yet our prayers often become repetitive and stale. How do we have a real conversation with God? How do we come to know Him so that we may pray for His will as our own?

In the Bible, God speaks to us as His children and gives us words for prayer—to praise Him, confess our sins, and request His help in our lives.
