A Pastor’s Prayer
Here is a prayer based out of 2 Timothy 2.
Our Lord, our God, Our Creator:
Before we knew you, you knew us,
Before we loved you, you loved us.
Put fear and humility in our hearts
That we might worship you today,
we might delight in all your glory,
we might turn our hearts unto You,
and we might be strengthened in our spirits.
Remind us once again of that glorious, sin-destroying, soul-saving grace by which we are saved.
Remind us again of the infinite sacrifice of Jesus Christ
on our behalf
because of the great love
which You loved us,
as Your very own.
Place your Spirit upon us Father,
to be faithful to teach others what we have learned.
To not become entangled in this world’s affairs.
To remember Jesus and His resurrection.
To remember those persecuted because of Jesus.
To not be a people who argue over words.
To be a people who rightly handle Your Word.
To abstain from wickedness.
To cleanse ourselves of known sin.
To pursue righteousness, faith, peace and love
That your name would be exalted
Sinners called to repentance.
