Leadership Essentials: Daily Prayer

Submitted by James Higginbotham on May 31, 2010 – 4:24 amNo Comment

We recently discussed how we as leaders must seek first and in seeking we must be prayerful. We all intend to pray. We may even pray on a daily basis. You may still be be asking what a prayerful leader might look like.

Prayer is an amazing thing that God has provided for us. Through the Holy Spirit by Jesus Christ we are given the freedom to approach God in a way that both powerful and personal. Whenever we hurt, whenever we are confused, whenever we are full of joy – we can approach the God of the Universe. Reflect on this, as I know that at times I can take prayer for granted.

Our prayer should be a mixture of love to God, confession of our sins, thankfulness of His justice, grace, and mercy, and requests for ourselves and others that need His help, wisdom, and guidance. If we let any one of these four key elements get too much focus, we can miss out on the blessings of the others. Often, we get so caught up in our needs that we forget to pray for others or to simply stop and tell God how amazing He is!

Take the time to pray for your team, your individual team members, your church, and your community. Pray for a right heart, required wisdom, and righteousness for your church and your team. Pray for clear direction and calling for each of your team members in their home, work, and church activities. You will be amazed at how God wants to provide for His children in ways you may not fully understand at the time.

Are you ready to become the praying leader that God wants you to be?
