Gracious God, you are the ultimate leader, the consummate head and our all-in-all. There is none like you, who walks before us, guiding us in your ways. I thank you for those you set up as ministry leaders. I thank them for their dedication to your work and commitment of their time. I thank you for programs designed to train leaders and equip them for the task you call them to perform. Thank you that they decided to be the ones you send into the field or just across the county. Thank you for their heart for you and their love for people. Exalt them, Lord. Protect them and provide for them. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.” (Hebrews 13:7 ESV)
