Today, we pray for our leaders
Lord Jesus, on this day we bring to You leaders of our churches, countries, organisations and homes. We pray that they remain fine men and women who always listen to their conscience and have the guts to obey it, whatever may be the price. May Your Holy Spirit be with them every step of the way, building groups and people, not breaking them. Bring Your qualities of mercy, justice and honesty into their daily lifestyles. Strengthen those of us who are called to be leaders. Bless in a special way those who are following helplessly, especially an unjust regime. Amen.
