Master, LORD Jesus, I can sense the heaviness of pressure mounting and the ominous presence of darkness around many pastors today, as our enemy is at work again. Whether he is trying to discourage, to sidetrack, to tempt, to cause to give up, or to take their eyes off You, he is always around.

LORD, Your pastors need Your Supernatural Power to stand strong and not surrender. Physical force will not help, because You have said the weapons of our warfare are different from those in this world. As believers, our weapons in You are powerful and can demolish strongholds and lies. These supernatural weapons originate in You. By Your precious Name and Blood, Jesus, I ask You to confuse Satan and cancel his attempts to shut pastors and their influence down. Help them not to become discouraged or to give in when heavy times of testing come.

When pastors are tired and weak, You are strong, and You are their only source of help. They cannot fight without You. Teach them how to pray and to trust You to pull down those strongholds that keep them helpless. Guard them from isolation that leaves them exposed and vulnerable. I believe You destroyed the power of my enemy by Your death and resurrection, but the enemy keeps showing up, whispering lies, twisting truth, and attempting to inflate their selfish pride. He never gives up.

LORD, in Your name, I am declaring the devil and his demons liars. Through the power of Your precious name and blood, I agree with Your Word and the truth that You are in these precious pastors, and that You are greater than the enemy who wants to rule the world. You, Your Word, and prayer, are their weapons. They belong to You, and that fills them with a powerful God-confidence. May they constantly dress in the spiritual armor You give them. Help them use it to defend others from Satan’s fiery darts as well. No one and nothing can snatch them away from Your hand.

Strengthen their faith, Lord. Forgive their sins, so that they may be clean in Your righteousness. Make them bold, to stand and fight the spiritual battles in their life and in our world. Give Your wisdom and discernment so they will not be caught off guard.

Together, Lord, we pastors will win, because in truth, You already have, in Jesus’ powerful name, before which every knee shall bow, Amen!
