Open Heaven 5 July 2024 TOPIC: Prayers For Elders

MEMORISE: “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.” – 1 Timothy 5:17 (KJV)

READ: 1 Peter 5:1-4 (KJV)

1 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:

2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;

3 Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being examples to the flock.

4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Proverbs 21-23

Open Heaven 5 July 2024 MESSAGE


  1. Lord, I thank you for all the elders in my church, family, community, and nation. Thank You Lord for keeping them up to their old age.
  2. Father, just as You strengthened Moses even in his old age, please strengthen the elders that are doing Your will so that they can continue to do Your work until You call them to glory.
  3. I banish every sickness that comes with old age from the elders in my church. I declare that they will enjoy divine health until God calls them home.
  4. Father, please give the elders the wisdom to advise and guide the younger ones right. Let them counsel with divine wisdom, in Jesus’ name.
  5. Father, please give all the elders in the body of Christ the right successors. Let none of the good works that they have started die with them, in Jesus’ name.
  6. Father, please let all the elders around me live the rest of their lives in joy. Don’t let them experience sorrow until You call them home, in Jesus’ name.
  7. Father, I pray that Your special anointing to heal the sick would rest on all the elders in the body of Christ. Your word says in James 5:14 that the sick should go to them for healing, therefore as they lay their hands on the sick, they will recover, in Jesus’ name.
  8. Father, please give the elders in the church a good legacy. Any plan of the devil to spoil their name before they are called to glory will be frustrated, in Jesus’ name.
  9. Father, please forgive all the elders of things they may have done in the past that You are not happy with. Please wipe their sins and give them the courage to confess and make restitutions where necessary, in Jesus’ name.
  10. Father, please send help to the elders who do not have people to take care of them. Send compassionate people that will take care of them like their own parents, in Jesus’ name.
  11. Father, please give me the resources to take good care of the elders in my family, church and community. Make me a blessing to them, in Jesus’ name.
  12. Your personal prayer points for the elders around you.

Open Heaven 5 July 2024 HYMN 22 – Sweet Hour Of Prayer! Sweet Hour Of Prayer!

1 Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
that calls me from a world of care,
and bids me at my Father’s throne
make all my wants and wishes known.
In seasons of distress and grief,
my soul has often found relief,
and oft escaped the tempter’s snare
by thy return, sweet hour of prayer!

2 Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
the joys I feel, the bliss I share
of those whose anxious spirits burn
with strong desires for thy return!
With such I hasten to the place
where God my Savior shows his face,
and gladly take my station there,
and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

3 Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!

thy wings shall my petition bear
to him whose truth and faithfulness
engage the waiting soul to bless.
And since he bids me seek his face,
believe his word, and trust his grace,
I’ll cast on him my every care,
and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!
