Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What are you doing to bless the lives of your spiritual leaders? Do you pray daily for them? Do you send them notes of encouragement? Do you thank them for their loving attention? Do you respond to their correction and take heart in their affirmations? Leaders don't need to be followed unthinkingly, but often, they get no support for their efforts. Let's make their work a blessing and not a burden (Hebrews 13:17). Let's respect our leaders who work hard among us!

My Prayer...

Thank you for our spiritual leaders, Almighty God, the Great Leader of Israel. Bless their families with faithfulness, their lives with health, their influence with Godly impact, and their leadership with willing followers. May you, dear God, be praised and glorified by the unity of your people and the quality of our leaders. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
