Blessed Father, there are many things that we are thankful for regarding our Pastors, and we thank You for them often. But today, dear Lord, we want to thank You because our Pastors ” do all things for the sake of the Gospel” [1 Corinthians 9:23a].
Empower them, O Lord, to continue to exalt our Lord Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection in every sermon and in every outreach ministry, so that the world will recognize Christ as the Lamb of God who died to take away the sins of the world and arose again from the dead. Help us to praise Him more often as the Head of His church.
Fill us with Your Spirit, O Lord, because we need Your Power. Receive our worship, adoration, and praise as a sweet smelling aroma that will glorify Your Holy Name. Rule and reign over our hearts and every aspect of our services so that Christ will be magnified.
Thank You, Lord. In Your Saving Name we pray. Amen.
