Dear Father, I thank You for our pastor leaders and church and the blessings they bring to the congregation. I pray that You will help them to walk in determination, steadfastness and endurance. Give them the strength to finish what they have started and endure to the end, just as Christ endured the cross. Father, we trust in Your Word, and pray that they will put aside every weight, and sin which so easily ensnares them, and they will run with endurance the race that is set before them, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
