A Prayer for Ministers

Here is a prayer that you may pray for ministers.  It is directly from the Bible, and will bring results in the lives of ministers, Sunday School or Bible teachers, (or anyone else who is responsible for publishing the Gospel in any way), who you pray it for.  As you pray it, mention the names of those who you are specifically praying for, then include every person throughout the whole earth who is sharing the Gospel in any way.

Father, in the Name of Jesus, I confess that the men and women who are responsible for giving out Your Gospel, have been given the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You and, the eyes of their understanding having been enlightened, they know what is the hope of Your calling, and what the riches of the glory of Your inheritance are in them, and what is the exceeding greatness of Your power to those who believe.  I thank You, Father, that they continue in prayer, and watch, in the same, with thanksgiving; and that You are opening unto them doors of utterance to speak the mystery of Christ.  I believe that they make that mystery manifest, as they ought to speak.

I thank you that they walk in wisdom toward those that are without, redeeming the time.  I confess that they know how they ought to answer every man.  Because of faith in Your Word, I say with my mouth, that they are filled with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that they walk worthy of You, Lord, unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of You, Father, strengthened with all might according to Your glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.

I give thanks unto You, Father, who have made them to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in Light; who have delivered them from the power of darkness, and have translated them into the kingdom of Your dear Son.  I confess that, speaking the truth in love, they are growing up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.  Your Word, which they speak, is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discener of the thoughts and intents of the heart.  They have an unction from the Holy One, and they know all things.  The anointing which they have received of You abides in them, and they need not that any man teach them; but as the same anointing teaches them of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught them, they shall abide in You.

I say that the lying lips, which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against these righteous men and women, are put to silence.  Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for them that fear You; which you have wrought for them that trust in You before the sons of men!  You hide them, in the secret of your presence, from the pride of man; You keep them secretly in a pavilion, from the strife of tongues.  No weapon that is formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that shall rise against them in judgement they shall condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of You.

I thank You, Father, that You are watching over Your Word to perform these things in their lives.  Amen.

Praying For The Body of Christ
The Bible says in James 3:16, "For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work."  One of the biggest problems the body of Christ has had, is fussing and fighting with one another.  This has not been a good testimony to the world, and has stopped the flow of God's power in certain areas in the lives of those who were in strife.  We would like to share a prayer for you to pray for your local body of believers and the body of Christ everywhere.  We have seen God move miraculously among church groups as people have confessed His Word over situations, instead of talking about problems and each other.  We believe, as you pray this prayer, that you will be set free from frustration and worrying about your brothers and sisters, and that you will witness the change in Christians all over the world.  Remember that there is no distance in the spirit world.  You can pray this prayer wherever you are, and God will use YOUR faith to get it done, even across the world!
Father, in the name of Jesus, I bring before You the body of believers of ___________ and all over the world.  I confess with my mouth, through faith in Your Word, that we let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word, nor unwholesome or worthless talk (ever) come out of our mouths, but only such speech as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace to those who hear it.  I say that we have let all bitterness and indignation and wrath (passion, rage, bad temper) and resentment (anger, animosity) and quarreling (brawling, clamor, contention) and slander (evil speaking, abusive or blasphemous language) be banished from us, with all malice (spite, ill will, or baseness of any kind).  And we have become useful and helpful and tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving hearted) and kind to one another, forgiving one another (readily and freely) as You, in Christ, forgave us.
Thank You, Father, that we walk in love esteeming and delighting in one another as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a slain offering and sacrifice to You.  I say, in the Name of Jesus, that we continue in prayer, and watch, in the same, with thanksgiving, and that our prayers avail much, because we have been made righteous through Jesus.  I thank You that You watch over Your Word to perform it.  I believe that I have received this, according to Mark 11: 23 & 24, in Jesus' Name.  Amen.

Praying For Ministries and Ministers
Here is a list of scriptures you can pray for ministries.  It is by no means complete, but it serves as a good foundation.  Be alert to find other scriptures to pray, especially from the Book of Acts.    Name those whom you want to, and always include every person throughout the whole earth who is responsible for spreading the Good News.  For those ministries that are in error in certain areas, use scriptures about God revealing the truth to them, such as Ephesians 1:17 & 18 and Job 22:30 (Amplified Bible).
