Years ago I founded the Prayer Corps ministry in Sacramento, California and Ted Rose was one of the key prayer leaders who kept the fires burning in the years that followed. I have a deep respect for Ted as an intercessor and a fellow mobilizer of prayer.Ted’s bookPastors Need Prayer: Holding up Your Pastor’s Arms through Prayer is truly a message the Church must hear today. We often think of our pastors as intercessors for us, but we don’t realize just how much our pastors need our prayers as well! From my early years as a youth pastor at a Midwest church with a handful of volunteer staff to my days today responsible for the spiritual leadership of more than 4,000 supported staff members of Every Home for Christ (the evangelism ministry I direct) along with some 40,000 monthly volunteers in 120 nations, I can personally attest to the unique challenges of a pastor’s life—and their genuine need for prayer!On the pages that follow, Ted sheds light on the practical and spiritual realities faced by our pastors on a day-to-day basis. He reveals the great need for prayer and spiritual support among the pastorate, and he helps us understand what meeting that need looks like. Ted offers useful guidance as we seek to become armor-bearers for the pastors in our lives, with valuable insights and biblical illustrations to guide us along the way.Ted is a close friend of and intercessor for countless pastors (including myself!), and I know he has seen the fruit of prayer for those in leadership. Like Ted, I am a passionate advocate for the power of prayer. Imagine the impact of every local church praying passionately for its pastors! I believe this book, if we will follow Ted’s urging, has the potential to truly transform our churches today. As we pray for our pastors, systematically and daily, will see powerful churches led by wise and godly men and women if we will unite behind them in fervent prayer.

"There's a fine line between the prophetic and the pathetic. Surrounded by a pathetic reality full of relativism, decadence, apathy and constant attempts by the enemy to silence the voices of righteousness, today's Pastors require the engagement of men and women anointed to interceded on their behalf. Pastor Ted Rose represents the quintessential intercessor. As a result of Rev. Rose and a lifetime committed to servant leadership via the conduit of praying for ministers, countless lives have been saved, pastors covered and pulpits protected.
Personally, I can attest that as I travel in advancing the Lamb's agenda, I approach the podium with confidence knowing that Christ is my rock and his servant, Ted Rose, stands in the gap so I can preach the word, in and out of season.
This book "Pastors Need Prayer" is a must read for every Pastor, intercessor and servant committed to igniting a prayer canopy so that Pastors can shine the light of Christ in this generation. "

"Pastors have been given an enormous responsibility to care, nurture, teach, and disciple their congregation. They receive vision and direction for the church God has given them to lead and the community He’s called them to reach. Ultimately Pastors are accountable to God for shepherding His sheep. With this calling comes spiritual warfare that can manifest in so many ways and overtime become debilitating and discouraging. Pastor Ted Rose, also an avid intercessor for pastors, has written a powerful book “Pastors Need Prayer – Holding Up Your Pastor’s Arms Through Prayer.” I highly recommend this must read book which provides you with strategic and effective keys to keep your pastor covered and protected through prayer and intercession."

As a Pastor nothing impacts my church more than a praying people. When I met Ted Rose and had him come he imparted to us a spirit of prayer that brought us to another level of power and authority. He showed to my church the importance and urgency of praying for their Pastor and leaders!
Revelation and understanding came to us that continues to change our lives!
I have known Ted Rose for a few years now and feel like I have known him for decades!! He carries the heart and passion of Christ who himself daily intercedes for us. This Book is a must read for intercessors and prayer warriors who are on the front lines fighting in prayer. Pastors need prayer, if the head is defeated so will the body be. If the head is weak so will the body be. As the scripture says, Strike the Shepherd and the sheep will scatter! But this book “strikes” back at the evil plans of the enemy and does a masterful job in demolishing demonic devices!! Great pastors are men and women who have great prayer lifted up to heaven on their behalf! Thanks Ted for writing such a timely book!

""Pastors Need Prayer." What a truthful statement that needs to be shouted out from the mountaintops. Ted Rose has approached a much needed issue, head on, and every church goer should read this book. When I ask my closest pastor friend how he's doing, he often says, 'I'm doing my best, but I'm still full of sheep bites!' So, let's embrace Ted's message and not complain to our pastors, demand things from them, or expect them to act and be a certain way. But let's pray for them and watch how the Lord will bless and honor them and grow the church. Thank you Ted, for challenging all of us to be a part of the solution."

If there ever was a man of prayer Ted is that. He first shared the principles contained within this book "Pastors Need Prayer" with my leadership over two decades ago, it revolutionized our church. For the first time people began to understand how important it was to pray for their pastor. Plus he equipped them with practical steps to accomplish this most necessary exercise. This is a book that every member of the body of Christ needs to read.

PASTOR RODERICK GITTENS
Senior Pastor Roderick Gittens - of San Francisco Christian Center, in San Francisco, California. One of the leading churches in the city of San Francisco, It is a great church in a beautiful city. Known as "A Church for All People" We believe that it is essential to our God-given DNA as a church family, from our beginnings over 50 years ago, to reflect in our lives together the diversity of our city and the world.
I was excited to see a book that addressed an important issue in the body of Christ that can go unnoticed, and that is the need for prayer for pastors. Ted Rose strategically addresses one of the key elements that the body of Christ in America and around the world will greatly benefit from and that is praying for our pastors. This book shows that prayer is the most powerful weapon that we have as believers but the most seldom used. But as believers begin to unleash the power of prayer for pastors, the church will greatly advance the kingdom of God in challenging times. I believe this book will be an excellent teaching tool for church leaders and members alike. I highly recommend and endorse "Pastors Need Prayer!"
Rev. Mark Gonzales
Founder – United States Hispanic Prayer Network
and Hispanic Action Network
Like every Moses needs an Aaron and Hur...so too does every pastor need a praying people holding him up to accomplish what God has called him to do here on the earth!!!
This book is an insightful look into the life and calling of pastors..your pastor and the role you play as his flock and intercessors in the success or failure of his ministry and calling.
The office of pastor in our current society is not what it use to be. The challenges are greater then they have ever been in the history of the church. (There is a reason why insurance policies want to know if you are a pastor, and if so your rates go up.) It is considered one of the most stressful occupations in society today.
If there is any one alive today that needs your prayers like never before it’s your pastor. From the seasoned intercessor to the brand new believer, everyone needs and has a responsibility to pray for their pastor.
Our prayer is that you will be challenged to action and not just being a church attender, but become a prayer warrior for your pastor. Pastors Need Prayer is a must read for every member that occupies and sits in a pew in any church anywhere. After you read this book, you will never look at your pastor the same way again.

Heading up the intercession department, Suzette played a major role in the worldwide campaign preparations and the general ministry, later becoming Reinhard’s associate evangelist.Her ministry of prayer during the Reinhard Bonnke evangelistic outreaches, often coupled with one-to-one evangelism and street evangelism, has brought thousands of souls into the kingdom of God and has motivated numerous Christians in prayer and personal evangelism.
This book will challenge you heart as its content moves from the inner heart of one intercessor to the outward expression of prayer against the schemes of the enemy forged against your pastor/ leader. As one intercessor is joined by another and then another on behalf of their leadership, we will see the enemy greatly defeated and the church/ work of God increasingly victorious in every city, state and nation! I endorse this book by Pastor Ted Rose, and encourage you to read it and make an impact where God positioned you!

Indeed the enemies bulls eye target is placed directly on the pastor to weaken and disarm the church, leave them powerless in slumber. Jesus said the gates of hell shall not prevail against His church. The Enemy's only enemy is the church. The Church has been given the same authority and power of Jesus by Jesus. The intercessory prayers of the congregation will be the iron wall which the enemy's arrow of fire could not break through. Our Lord may question each of the churches congregation for their fallen pastor at the Judgement seat. For this strategic awakening may arise from every church in USA through this important book "Pastors Need Prayer" by Pastor Ted Rose.

I have known Ted Rose for approximately 25 years as a friend, fellow servant and faithful intercessor on behalf of the Body of Christ. I am also honored to have served as Ted’s pastor and had the privilege of our church sending him out to start a strategic House of Prayer ministry in Sacramento, CA. that continues to this day, some 20+ years later. For as long as I have known Ted he has had a passion for prayer and a call to teach and equip the Church in the area of intercession. In my estimation, Ted is a present day Apostle of Prayer. I know for a fact that this book is a small reflection of a life of prayer and the overflow of a person that has lived out the principles of this book for at least 3 decades of ministry to the Body of Christ.I could not recommend more highly “Pastor’s Need Prayer”. This book is an urgent and needed message to the Church regarding the realities that are facing those men and woman of God that serve in Pastoral roles in the Church. “Pastor’s Need Prayer” not only addresses the challenges every Pastor faces but also provides profound inspiration and practical instruction on how a church can cover their Pastor(s) in prayer. I do not exaggerate when I say that there may not be a more important book or more urgent of a message than that which exists within the pages of this book.
Pastor Rose served as Pastor of Prayer under Pastor McGuire's leadership at Oasis Christian Fellowship, Woodcrest, California.
