Prayer for Pastors on Palm Sunday

Prayer for Pastors on Palm Sunday

Oh Sovereign Friend,

You alone are worthy of our praise. You alone deserve our whole hearted devotion and affection. May our sermons find their hope and hearts directed at the risen king. May the treasures delivered from our pulpits be none other than the humble hero riding on a donkey to save us from our sins and the wrath to come. May the seed we bring and scatter from our pulpits, be none other than the holy seed of the Gospel. Water it Lord. Bring growth! 

Lord, do not let low attendance affect our announcement. Spirit, keep our eyes off of the low offering. Jesus – may our hearts burn for your glory.

Holy Lord – bless all of my A29 brothers. May our pulpits resound with the fame of Jesus Christ. May cities be stirred up and turned upside because your churches and your people are so centered on Jesus that He cannot be ignored.

King Jesus – may our sermons announce you as our great God and Savior. May they humbly proclaim your Kingship, your supremacy & your saving and shepherding heart. Lord, send the Holy Spirit in a powerful way tomorrow. Spirit come!

Triune God – may you stir in the people to respond to what we say. May none of our words fall on deaf ears. Take our poor words and make them rich. Even now, prepare the hearers.

Tomorrow, may it be said that every pulpit preached Jesus. Oh Lord, what a day that would be!!

I ask all this in the blood of Jesus and for your glory.

Amen.
