You Have Been Prayed For… 1 CORINTHIANS 4:2

Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this line from Charles R. Swindoll.

“We shouldn’t expect our leaders to be perfect, but we should expect them to be authentic, willing to admit their imperfections. And we should expect them to be accountable to a constitution, a plurality of leaders, and also to the congregation or constituency they serve.”

1 Corinthians 4:2
New American Standard Bible

In this case, moreover, it is required of stewards that one be found trustworthy.

Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You.  Bless You, for the Scriptures that teach us what is trustworthy and true. Help all the leaders of Your church to love the Word more than the world and to serve the flocks in love and with grace resulting in Your glory. Help us to support them and encourage them in love and not to apply expectations on them that would make it difficult for them to be honest when they slip as we do. Remind us that our church leaders are sinners as we are and need our prayers as much, if not more so than we do. In Jesus’ name, amen. 

If this prayer blessed you or brought you peace, please share this with someone in need.
