Our loving Savior, hallowed be Your name in and over all the earth.

Keep them obedient to Your word with a clear understanding and sound judgment of the scriptures. Amen.

Dear Father, I thank You for our pastor leaders and church and the blessings they bring to the congregation. I pray that You will help them to walk in determination, steadfastness and endurance. Give them the strength to finish what they have started and endure to the end, just as Christ endured the cross. Father, we trust in Your Word, and pray that they will put aside every weight, and sin which so easily ensnares them, and they will run with endurance the race that is set before them, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer for Peace
Dear Lord, we thank you for Your peace that surpasses all understanding. We bless You because Your Word teaches us to say, peace, be still!

Lord, help them not to be anxious about anything, because You will keep them in perfect peace if they keep their mind on You. Amen.
