Prayer for Leaders…They Are on the Frontlines

May 11, 2009

Abba, I praise You and thank You for all that You are doing for Your people. I especially thank You for Your leaders who are on the front lines for all of us. They are the guardians, the watchmen on the wall. Yet, Abba, isn’t that what we all should be? Help us all to not look to those with the gift of leadership to do it all. Help us to be supportive of one another. Help us to edify one another and to encourage one another, especially as we see the day coming closer.

Thank You, Abba, for Your healing Shalom. Thank You for Your Shabbat rest that You have gifted to us. Thank You for the many ways that You touch us and protect us. Thank You for Your loving touch. Thank You for Your chastisement…for You love the children whom You correct. May we all accept Your loving correction.

Abba, please give Your leaders wisdom to teach correctly…according to Your word with discernment. Give them guidance to lead as Yeshua would have them lead. Give them strength to stand firm upon the rock of Your salvation. These are troubling times, Abba. May Your leaders, along with all of Your children, stand firm on the truth. May we all not give in to fear of the future…for You hold the future in Your hands…just as You hold the past.

Protect Your leaders, Abba. Hold back the powers of darkness that want so furiously to destroy them and Your people. They want to destroy any true witness of Your glory. They are  coming against Your leaders and against any one who truly tries to live in obedience to You and Your ways. Please put a hedge of protection around us all, Abba.

May we all glorify You in all that we think, do and say. May we begin to understand Your holiness. May it humble us, Abba, and bring us to true repentance. May it light a fire within us to spread Your gospel and share You with others. May it cause us to love You with all of our hearts, our minds, our souls and our strengths. May it cause us to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Help us to understand just who our neighbors are, Abba. Help us to see the needs within the body of Yeshua and the needs in the world around us. May we never let a need that we can somehow meet pass us by, especially as it pertains to the household of the faith. May we never allow disagreeableness to come into the body of Yeshua. May we love one another and may we love in spite of offenses. May we show the world around us and others in the body how to love unconditionally.

Abba, thank You so much for Your faithfulness. May we be as faithful to You as You are to us. Amen and amen!
