Pray For Our Leaders

Pray for our leader

A strong and prosperous nation has a prudent leader and many able ministers. Under Solomon Israel enjoyed some forty years of prosperity. Similarly, a church needs good leaders.

Generally, the faith of the leaders of the church is stronger than the faith of the believers. Their spirituality is also higher. However, they are flesh and blood too and are vulnerable to infirmities. Paul therefore wrote to the church in Thessalonica to pray for him and his co-workers (2 Thess 3:1). Truly, leaders of the church require the prayers of the believers.

Preaching is a spiritual activity. We need to rely on the power from on high (Lk 24:49; Rom 15:18). Though we face difficulties in preaching the gospel today, we should not lose heart. We should not be worried that our members do not increase in number, our believers are not fervent or the people of the world are hard- hearted. As long as there are prayers, God will take care of the rest, All we need to do is to pray in one accord for our leaders that they will be faithful and humble servants of God.
