Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 26

Pray that your pastor’s wife will think biblically—with the mind of Christ—and practice
the expression of her faith with boldness in places of influence.

For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But we have the mind of Christ.  1 Cor 2:16

Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.  See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.  Col 2:6-8

So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart; and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness.  But you did not learn Christ in this way, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.  Therefore, laying aside falsehood, SPEAK TRUTH EACH ONE of you WITH HIS NEIGHBOR, for we are members of one another.  Eph 4:17-25

I will also speak of Your testimonies before kings
And shall not be ashamed.  Psalm 119:46

Pray that God will give your pastor a clear, biblical vision of what your church can be
and should be for His glory, and that he will communicate that vision clearly and confidently to the church.

Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained,
But happy is he who keeps the law.  Prov 29:18

You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.  John 15:16

Pray that your pastor’s wife will be clothed with strength and dignity. Pray that she will
have a gentle and gracious spirit, and represent the Lord well as His ambassador.

Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.  Prov 31:25

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.  2 Cor 5:20

Your adornment must not be merely external—braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.  1 Pet 3:4-5

Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 21

Pray that your pastor’s wife will be wise in her conversations, choosing her words
carefully to encourage respect for her husband and the church, and to edify her sisters
in the Lord. Pray that she will know how to respond to gossip, and that she will always
speak with kindness and compassion.

He who guards his mouth and his tongue,
Guards his soul from troubles.  Prov 21:23

She opens her mouth in wisdom,
And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.  Prov 31:26

For, “THE ONE WHO DESIRES LIFE, TO LOVE AND SEE GOOD DAYS,  MUST KEEP HIS TONGUE FROM EVIL AND HIS LIPS FROM SPEAKING DECEIT.  1 Pet 3:10

He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets,
But he who is trustworthy conceals a matter.  Prov 11:13

Pray that your pastor will not give in to discouragement, but will deal with inevitable
criticism and conflict by committing himself into the hands of God, who judges righteously.

While being reviled, Jesus did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously.  1 Peter 2:23

Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 20

Ask God to remind her of the hope and refuge God offers her each day. Pray that she
will be encouraged in God, knowing that He is a firm, secure anchor for her soul.

The LORD also will be a stronghold for the oppressed,
A stronghold in times of trouble; And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.  Ps 9:9-10

Why are you in despair, O my soul? 
And why have you become disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him
For the help of His presence.  Ps 42:5

This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.  Heb 6:19-20
