A Prayer for Pastors

2 Timothy 4:5  (ID: 1763)

In churches everywhere, many pastors are discouraged, burdened, and overworked. How, then, can church members best pray for their pastors? Alistair Begg counsels us by drawing on Paul’s words of encouragement to his pastoral protégé, Timothy. Paul urges Timothy and other pastors to keep their heads amid challenges and trials. By praying that our pastors may endure hardship, evangelize to the lost, and complete the work of their ministry, we aid them in their important callings.


5As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
