Prayer Topic #6:
A Prayer for Our Windsor Village Staff and Ministry Volunteers
Psalm 96, I Corinthians 12:12-27
Reflections of the Heart:
As Kingdom Citizens, we are called to not only receive, but to serve. Therefore, let us pray that the Windsor Village staff and ministry volunteers are refreshed and renewed daily, so that those who are touched by them will see and feel the love of Christ.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for our staff and ministry volunteers. Thank You, God, for guiding their feet into the way of peace. Thank You, Lord, for their commitment and dedication to the Kingdom work You are manifesting through our Windsor Village Church Family. Father, Your majestic Name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. You have taught children and infants to tell of Your strength, silencing Your enemies and all who oppose You. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne. Lord, You are such a faithful God. You are our rock, our deliverer, in whom we trust. You are worthy to be praised.
Righteous Father, let Your Kingdom come and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven through our staff and ministry volunteers. We declare that each of them understand the roles they play in manifesting Your plans for the Kingdom. They have the mind of Christ, and they hold the thoughts and purposes of His heart. They hold fast to the profession of their faith without wavering; for You are faithful in fulfilling Your promises. Their minds will stay on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report. They are doers of the Word and not hearers only. They work as if You are their direct supervisor. Because of their service to Your Kingdom, their needs are consistently met according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Lord, we decree that they serve in humility, harmony and unity with others on their team. They each serve with a spirit of excellence and a garment of praise.
Holy Spirit, I will bless our staff and ministry volunteers in our Church Family by:
Loving Father, please fill our staff and ministry volunteers with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. Stir their hearts to hunger and thirst after You. Father, bless them physically, spiritually, emotionally and financially. Bless their families, homes, jobs and/or businesses. Give them favor with all persons they come in contact with and help them to complete every assigned task. Lord, protect them and keep them safe. Help them to not get tired of doing good. Fill each of them with joy and pour out Your love upon them.
Forgiving Father, forgive our staff and ministry volunteers for any acts of sinfulness. Forgive those for idolatry, dissension, strife, pride, rebellion, discord, jealousy, injustice, hatred and slander. Forgive those who murmur and complain. Forgive those who have impure motives for serving. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind our staff and ministry volunteers of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names and faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive names of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help our staff and ministry volunteers not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.
Triumphant Lord, You are the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power. You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
