Prayer For Good Leadership
Dear Father, I pray that as leaders, lead Your people, I pray that they will not do it selfishly, for personal ambition or vain conceit. I pray that You help leaders to realize that leading is really a task that requires them to serve. So, Father, raise up servant leaders, in Jesus' name. Help them to work in humility. Make them selfless vessel of You, in Your image. Remove any selfish desires. Amen.
Teach me to listen, O God,
to those nearest to me,
my family, my friends, my co-workers.
Help me to be aware that
no matter what words I hear,
the message is
"Accept the person I am. Listen to me."
Teach me to listen, my caring God,
to those far from me--
the whisper of the hopeless.
the plea of the forgotten,
the cry of the anguished.
Teach me to listen, O God my Mother,
Help me to be less afraid
to trust the voice inside--
in the deepest part of me
Teach me to listen, Holy Spirit,
for your voice--
in busyness and in boredom,
in certainty and in doubt,
in noise and in silence.
Teach me, Lord, to listen. Amen.
Leadership is hard to define.
Lord, let us be the ones to define it with justice.
Leadership is like a handful of water.
Lord, let us be the people to share it with those who thirst.
Leadership is not about watching and correcting.
Lord, let us remember it is about listening and connecting.
Leadership is not about telling people what to do.
Lord, let us find out what people want.
Leadership is less about the love of power,
and more about the power of love.
Lord, as we continue to undertake the role of leader let us be
affirmed by the servant leadership we witness in your son Jesus.
Let us walk in the path He has set and let those who will, follow.
Let our greatest passion be compassion.
Our greatest strength love.
Our greatest victory the reward of peace.
In leading let us never fail to follow.
In loving let us never fail
Dear Lord Almighty,
I come humbly before you, lifting up all my fears, doubts and anxieties and asking that you send forth your Holy Spirit to fill my mind with positive thoughts and my heart with faith that I can do things according to your will and stop feeling inferior & doubting my capabilities. Help me to accomplish everything I need to do, and in so doing, be instrumental in the learning of others as well as in the healing of others. Grant O Lord that I can demonstrate good leadership and can praise you in others and through others. I am grateful Lord for every single blessing in my life & for every opportunity you present me to be a better person everyday. Please help me to be calm, collected, confident with my job and role, and most especially be at peace with myself and everyone around me. This I pray in Jesus name. Amen.

Heavenly Father, Your Word declares that we will not be afraid nor dismayed because You are our God. Right now, Lord, we pray for leadership guidance for every leader, in Jesus' name. I pray that they will exercise faith, knowing that You will strengthen them and help them. You, Lord, will uphold them with Your righteous hand. Thank You in advance for Your divine strength for our leaders. Thank You for Your guidance. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Eternal Father, I pray that You will give every leader strength, so they do not grow weary in their leadership role. Father, the tasks may seem overwhelming and exhausting, but I pray that every leader will recognize that they are assigned to do Your will. Therefore, I know that at the right time, they will reap the harvest/rewards if they do not give up. Lord, I pray for divine strength for every leader and that they will not rely on themselves, but on You. Amen.
