Today, we pray for those in authority
Lord Jesus, on this day we bring to You leaders of our churches, countries, organisations and homes. We pray that they are 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, humility and honesty into their daily lifestyles. Strengthen those of us who are called to be leaders. May we know how to follow too. May God’s favour be upon our leaders. Amen.
