Pray 31 Day 27 ~ Prayer for the Pastor’s Wife

” We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13

Jesus,

May you bless the pastor’s wife who is so much more than just the pastor’s wife.

Let us remember that she is human too and cannot do it all.

We pray that you would encourage her heart as she supports her husband who carries the weight of those you have entrusted to him.

Help her to remember that perfection is not expected of her, and that others would not assume that it should be.

Let her live free from feeling the need to live up to the expectations of others and to be wholly focused on you.

For her role doesn’t define her; you do.

Bring her people to uplift her, support her, and to just let her be.

May she have those who pour into her when her soul feels weary and tired.

Help her to live authentically, vibrantly, and in obedience to what you have shaped her for with joy and thanksgiving.

Protect her family, her heart, and her life with you.

In Jesus name,

Amen
