Pray for Your Local Pastor
Being a pastor of a local church is undoubtedly one of the toughest jobs there is. Pastors help feed us spiritual food for spiritual strength and are responsible for watching over our souls. God will require an account from them someday; they are held to a high standard yet are men like we are.
Jesus says in John 10:11 - “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”
Jesus knows us; Christ-followers are His sheep – John 10:14 - “I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.”
Many people think it is solely the job of pastors to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. NO! ALL Christ-followers are responsible for declaring Jesus and his plan of salvation to others. Psalms 96:3 - “Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.”
Our local pastors are the shepherds of the local church ‘flock’. Together, all like-minded, spiritually-born individuals and flocks make up the Body of Christ.
satan attacks pastors and their families frequently, because he knows if one falls, the impact is exponential … it affects the whole congregation. These men answered the call of The Great Shepherd and need our prayers.
1Peter 5:2 - “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;”
To Pastors everywhere, thank you (and your family) for your service to our Lord. We pray God will be by your side and one day you will hear, 'Well done, good and faithful servant.'
