Prayer for 1 Timothy 3:5

“(If anyone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of God's church?)”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the clear, biblical guidelines on the role of elders and overseers in the Church. We pray for all who are called into Church leadership, that they may endeavour to live godly lives - as outlined in the first book of Timothy. Grant them wisdom and grace to manage their own households in godly fear, and we pray that they may translate these practices into the caring supervision of their congregations. Keep them from the many fleshly pitfalls that could harm their testimony, and may all Your children seek to live godly in Christ Jesus - to His praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
