Pray for Your Leaders
Read 2 Thessalonians 1:1 through 3:18
Published: Oct 30, 2017
Throughout Scripture, believers are instructed to pray for their leaders: pastors, bosses, and government officials. Sometimes we neglect to pray for our leaders, or we pray for them in general terms: “Lord, please bless our pastor and strengthen his family.”
Paul asked the Thessalonians to pray for him—but not for blessings or material benefits. Instead, he asked that they pray for God’s kingdom to be advanced.
Pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you (2 Thessalonians 3:1).
Paul then asks them to pray specifically for deliverance from “wicked and evil men.” Paul knew that ministers need spiritual protection as they preach the gospel.
Today’s leaders need our prayers more than ever. The spread of the gospel is directly impacted by the prayers of God’s people. Bold, specific prayers will pave the way for God’s kingdom to come and His will to be done.
Challenge for Today: Pray specific, kingdom-advancing prayers for your leaders today.
