To Be Strong Leaders
Father, I'm praying for the pastor/clergy
(name those you know) who serve in my church
and the churches of other family and friends...
Help them to lead with—
the heart of David (Acts 13:22b),
the wisdom of Solomon (2 Chronicles 1:10–12),
the faith of Abraham (Romans 4:12),
the purity of Joseph (Genesis 39:10–12),
the steadfastness of Daniel (Daniel 6:10),
the vision of Nehemiah (Nehemiah 2:17; 4:9; 6:15),
the courage of Joshua ( Joshua 1:6; 11:23),
the strength of Caleb ( Joshua 14:10–12),
the obedience of Noah (Genesis 6:22),
the meekness of Moses (Numbers 12:3),
the determination of Paul (2 Corinthians 4:8–9),
and the servant heart of Christ ( John 13:14–15).
May they clearly instruct those they're responsible for in the way they should live to please You. May they shepherd whatever group You have given them with integrity of heart, and lead them with skillful hands. (1 Thessalonians 4:1; Psalm 78:72)
In Jesus' name, amen.
