Prayer to Be More Effective Leader
You've stepped up. You are among a smaller crowd now - the crowd of leaders. You've proven yourself faithful over little things, which has brought you bigger things. When you speak, people listen. When you lead, they follow. You are growing everyday. Learning from the best. And you're leading while serving. You're a leader after God's own heart.
Matthew 20:26-28 NLT:
But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your c servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your d slave. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a e ransom for many.”
Luke 12:48b NLT:
When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.
Proverbs 16:21 NLT:
The wise are known for their understanding,
and pleasant words are persuasive.
God, I want to step into a position of leadership. Knowing that leadership starts with servant hood, I want to learn how to serve like you would. Show me how to cultivate the heart of a servant. Help me to be on the lookout for ways I can lend a hand and serve those I lead. As I step up to the plate I know you will require more of me. Give me wisdom and show me how to handle my new territory. Bring people and resources I can learn from, as I desire to be constantly growing as a leader. I am thankful for new things you are allowing me to step into and I desire to prove myself faithful and serve you in a way you will make you proud!
I am a leader after God's own heart. He is my model and I pattern my way of leading after his. I am watching over those I serve, looking for ways I can help them and improve their lives. I seek to encourage them, understand them, and grow them. I will be sensitive to their needs. As I lead I will serve. I will pray for wisdom and look to God for help in the new territory his gives me as a leader.
