How to Pray for Your Pastor

How to Pray for the Pastoral Staff, John Piper.

 It is wise indeed to instruct churches on how to pray for their pastors. On this hangs the strength and effectiveness of the leadership, and in particular their gospel-work, which in turn results in a strengthened church. At issue is no less than the advance of the gospel in the world and the glory of Christ through this. I can recall before entering the ministry being asked to pray for my pastor in a prayer meeting, and not knowing much of what to say. A church that doesn't pray for its pastor will have a weary pastor and will be an ever-weakening church. 

Let us pray for our pastors and elders in particular. Piper offers here a helpful guide on how to do so.
