PRAYER CONCERNING MINISTRY
Matthew 20:28 2Corinthians 4:1-2; 1Peter 4:10-11; Ephesians 4:11-16;
2Timothy 4:1-4; Hebrews 6:10-12 (KJV)

Matthew 20:28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister , and to
give his life a ransom for many.

2Corinthians 4:1-2
1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the
word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's
conscience in the sight of God.

1Peter 4:10-11
10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good
stewards of the manifold grace of God.
11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister , let him do it as of
the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to
whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Ephesians 4:11
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors
and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of
Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a
perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind
of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even
Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint
supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of
the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

2Tim 4:1-4
4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and
the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all
longsuffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall
they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof
of thy ministry.

Hebrews 6:10-12
10 For God is not unrighteous to forget Your work and labor of love, which ye have shewed
toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister .
11 And we desire that every one of You do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope
unto the end:
12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the
promises.


Father in the Name of Jesus, Lord, I thank You for choosing me for the Ministry.  Lord

Jesus, I thank You for the Ministry of Reconciliation and I thank You for entrusting me with the

awesome responsibility of the Ministry, which I to not take lightly.  Lord, I seek You for direction

concerning the ministry.   Jesus, help me to be a faithful minister of Your Word.  Jesus, anoint

me to be Your Oracle so that I may preach and teach Your sound doctrine.  Guide me in what to

study and how and when to speak.  Lord give me understanding in Your Word and help me to

minister Your Word in Agape Love and in wisdom, understanding and patience.  Word my

mouth, give me what to say for You know what the souls who You send me to have need of.  

Give me understanding in the operation of Your Holy Spirit.   Jesus,  Help me to be sensitive to

be Your Spirit so that I may submit myself to You, so that the gifts of the Holy Spirit may flow

freely as You would have me to minister.  Oh God!  Anoint me for service so that those who are

in the bondage of sin may be set free; anoint me for service so that the yokes of depression,

suppression and oppression will be destroyed and demons flee.  Jesus, help me to be faithful in

service whether You have me to minister to one person, or thirty, one-hundred or a multitude.  

Jesus anoint me to minister Your Word to the souls with Holy boldness, for Your Word is Spirit

and it is Life.  

Jesus I pray for wisdom and knowledge in every area of ministry from the pulpit to the pew,

from evangelism to administration.  Lord Jesus, help me to be balance in the Ministry and in my

personal life and with my family.  Help me to live a Holy life; a life that is pleasing to You.  

Jesus, I pray not only for myself but for my brothers and sisters whom You have chosen and

have answered the call to the Ministry.  Help us to stand on Your Word and maintain the

standard of Holiness.  Jesus, I surrender my all to You; Lord God, You get the glory out of my

life and shall I gain any praise it shall all go to Calvary.  To God be the Glory for the things You

have done, are doing and will do.  In Jesus Name, Amen.
