Heavenly Father, we lift our spiritual leaders and mentors to you. We thank You for the shepherds You have appointed to guide and nurture our faith. Bless them with wisdom, discernment, and deep intimacy with you. Strengthen their faith and empower them to teach and preach your word boldly and with clarity. Protect them from spiritual attacks and grant them endurance in their service. Pour out your anointing upon them as they lead your people in worship, discipleship, and ministry. May they walk in humility, be filled with your love, and be examples of Christ-likeness to those they shepherd. May we grow deeper in our faith, and one day be a spiritual mentor to another!In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen
