Deacons serve in the church, but they also minister to those who need help. They go out of their way to promote healing, service, and love. It’s a lot of work, which means it’s important that deacons connect with God through prayer to ask for direction and guidance.
Powerful Prayers For Deacons
1. Uplifting Prayer To Become A Deacon
- Uplifting Prayer To Become A Deacon
- Lord, I pray that you will give this man the grace of your Holy Spirit to be faithful in his duties as a deacon. Please guide him in everything he does and help him to be a good example for others to follow. May he grow into a servant leader who is worthy of your trust and confidence. I ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
2. Encouraging Prayer For Future Deacons
Encourage your deacon to pray and seek God in the following ways:
- Pray for their families and those they serve. God blesses those who bless His people, so it’s important that all of us are praying for our deacons.
- Pray for their spiritual growth. God wants us all to grow in our relationship with Him and learn how He wants us to serve Him, so encourage your future deacon to be open to what God has planned for them spiritually.
- Pray for their personal growth as well. Encourage them not only with words but also by setting a good example yourself! Remember that you’re all on this journey together!
3. Prayer For A Deacon And His Family
- Prayer for the Deacon and His Family:
Pray for the deacon and his family, that God will be with them during their time of grief. Pray that they will have the strength to endure this time of trial and sadness. Ask God to give them courage, patience, and peace through this difficult experience. Pray that they will be able to celebrate this person’s life and legacy without letting anger or bitterness take over their hearts. Ask God to help them recall the good times they shared as well as consider what could have been done differently in order to prevent this tragedy from happening in the first place if possible. Continue praying until you feel comfortable ending your prayer time by thanking God for being with all those involved in such a hard time in their lives right now!
4. Inspirational Prayer For Those In The Deacon Ministry
When you pray for deacons, remember to pray for both those who are in the ministry and those who are not. Pray that all of God’s people will be united as one body, so that we may grow into maturity together and become a beautiful aroma to God. Prayer can help us overcome resentment against those who serve God without us having to do anything about it!
5. Encouraging Prayer For Retiring Deacons
Pray for the deacon who is retiring. Pray that God will bless him, his wife, and their family.
Pray that God will use this time of rest to refresh the deacon’s mind and body so he can better serve others in his new life.
Pray for the church where the deacon served faithfully over many years of service. What will happen as he leaves? How can you help them through this period?
Pray for whoever replaces him in ministry—pray that God would give him or her wisdom, courage, and strength as they step into this role of responsibility!
6. Faithful Prayer For All Deacons
- Prayer for the Church and its Leaders
- Prayer for the Pastor, his Family, and other Leaders in the Church
- Prayer for the Church and its Members
- Prayer of Grace and Blessing
- A time to give thanks – Deacons are encouraged to use this time as an opportunity to reflect on what they have done well as deacons during a particular year.
7. Prayer For Our Church And Our Pastor And Deacons
This prayer is for the pastor and deacons. Pray for them to be faithful, healthy, and successful in their service to the church.
8. Pray for yourself and others serving the church.
Prayer is the best way to learn how to pray. As you pray for yourself and others, use these guidelines:
- Pray humbly. Remember that God hears your prayers and will answer them if they are in accordance with His will.
- Pray faithfully. The Bible says, “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16). It also says, “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Ask God for His help in praying when you have time and strength for it; then keep praying throughout the day as opportunities arise or situations occur where you can give thanks or ask for forgiveness or guidance from Him.
- Be prayerful in all things—including being kind, generous, loyal, and patient—because kindness begets kindness; generosity begets generosity; loyalty begets loyalty; patience begets patience etcetera ad infinitum ad nauseam until death do us part!
