This is the audio from the June 27, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“’Their leader will be one of their own; their ruler will arise from among them. I will bring him near and he will come close to me, for who is he who will devote himself to be close to me?’ declares the LORD. ‘So you will be my people, and I will be your God.'”
Jeremiah 30:21-22 (NIV)
This week we will be praying about leadership and how God wants those who lead, to lead according to His will, instruction, and power. Before you dismiss this prayer guide as not applicable to you, or think it is all about someone else, look around at how God has called you to lead. Leadership done God’s way should always take place under the ultimate leadership of God and be done so that people recognize Him as the One who is leading. As you pray this week, ask God to make you aware of the situations He has called you to lead in. Pray that you would lead in ways that make Him known rather than in ways that promote yourself or your own agenda. Pray that you would always know God as the leader you follow — even in areas you are called to lead in.
“The people rejoiced at the willing response of their leaders, for they had given freely and wholeheartedly to the LORD. David the king also rejoiced greatly.”
1 Chronicles 29:9 (NIV)
Pray that your willingness to give would cause those you are leading to rejoice. Pray that your generosity would always flow from the knowledge that you are giving to the Lord.
