Day 7 – The Power of the Holy Spirit on His Ministers
Scriptures to Meditate on and Pray through –
“But when you pray, go into your upper room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you” (Matthew 6:6).
“After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone. Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself” (Matthew 14:23; John 6:15).
“I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me” (Romans 15:30).
“He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers” (2 Corinthians 1:10–11).
How to Pray: In Secret Place –
Take time to realize when you are alone with God: Here am I, face-to-face with God, to intercede for His servants. Never think you have no influence or that your prayers would not be missed. Your prayer and your faith will make a difference. Pray in secret to God for His ministers of the Gospel.
What to Pray: For the Power of the Holy Spirit on His Ministers –
What a great number of ministers (pastors, church planters, missionaries, evangelists, prophets and teachers) there are in Christ’s church. And what a need they have for prayer. What strength they might work in if they were all clothed with the power of the Holy Spirit. Pray for this, long and often. Think of your own pastor, and ask especially for him or her. Connect every ministry in your town or neighborhood or the world with the prayer that all might be filled with the Holy Spirit. Plead for them the promise that they will be clothed with power from on high.
