31 Days of Prayer for Your Apostolic Pastor

31 Days of Prayer for Your Apostolic Pastor

The Apostolic pastor faces unique challenges. While he does enjoy the blessings of seeing people saved and helping them live fulfilling lives for God, he also struggles with seeing people backslide, with spiritual struggles in the church and community, and with standing strong doctrinally in a time where the majority Christian world would like us to believe that holiness and sound doctrine are no longer required. For this reason it is of utmost importance that we keep our pastors in our daily prayer times. You can use this 31-day prayer guide to help you as you pray for him. I encourage you to print this list and go through it each month, praying for the topic listed each day.
