1Th 5:12,13  And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.

Dear Father

We thank you for your loving kindness to us and the the leaders you place in our lives to bless us. We ask that you put your Spirit in the hearts of our leaders and grant them wisdom to know how to bless us and guide us as members of His covenant church.

We pray for President Wilson and his wife and children that you would grant them great blessings and joy in the Lord. Please also be with the vice presidents and their families. Keep them safe from the evil one and may they be greatly blessed in the Lord.

We pray for the presidents of the various divisions around the world that you would protect them and bless them and their families. Please keep our hearts from temptations to think evil against them, but rather always pray for them, love them and esteem them highly for the sake of Jesus.

We pray for all our pastors and teachers that you would encourage them and bless them in the Word of God and give them courage to do what is right. Please help all of our pastors to take seriously the words of our president to read the Bible literally and have faith in the Spirit of prophecy.

We thank you for sending Pastor Wilson and encouraging our hearts. We thank you for the great blessing he has been to us already. We esteem him highly in love for his works sake and covenant to continue to pray for him and his family and all the pastors you have placed in our church.

In the precious name of Jesus your Son and our Saviour

Amen
