One of the spiritual responsibilities of the worship leader is to invest time and passion into relentless prayer for the work of God in your church and your community. These worship leader prayers are the opportunity to go ahead of your team, your pastor, your congregation and plead with the God of the universe that He would do the things He promises to do. What an incredible privilege!

Worship leader prayers are an expression of our praying without ceasing. There is an inexhaustible list of what we could pray for but let me give you a few worship leader prayers you could be praying daily or weekly, relentlessly as you prepare to lead your church in worship.

Pray for God’s glory

“May all the kings of the earth praise you, LORD,
when they hear what you have decreed.
May they sing of the ways of the LORD,
for the glory of the LORD is great.”
Psalm 138:4-5

Pray for Jesus to be exalted over all

“Therefore God exalted Jesus to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians 2:9-11

Pray for your pastor

“Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you.
Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.”

Pray for people to meet Jesus

“He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”
