Praying For Our Leaders

Leadership is a spiritual gift, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy.  It can be lonely, frustrating and disappointing.  We should take time to be thankful for the leaders in our life — in our family, our church, our work and our world.  Here’s a prayer for leaders I found that may help you do that.  You can read more by following this link:

A Prayer For Leaders In Your Life

Dear God,

I stop and think of those who are leaders in my life…
in my home…
in my work….
in my country….
in the world….

Perhaps there is someone I find it hard to think of with love.

I hand over to you any anger or fear I feel.
In this moment, I send them love.

However I feel about them, in this moment, I see your love flowing into me and out from me to them.

Dear God, I ask you to feed these people on your wisdom and your understanding,
for their good and for the good of all they serve.

Let them recognise and take the authority that is theirs to take.

Thank you God for guiding them every step of the way.

“1 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior…” -1 Timothy 2:1-3
