Loving Lord and Heavenly King, thank You for the work in ministering to others, that in Your kindness, You have placed me. Father, there are many challenges and many temptations in the ministry into which You have seen fit to place me, and I pray that in all things You would give me wisdom, discernment, integrity and a humility that only comes from You.
Keep me from being influenced by the flattering tongues of men and women, and keep me ever mindful that this is not my exclusive ministry, but simply the place that You have seen fit to place me for the time-being.
Help me to use my time wisely, and to be prudent in the way I spend ministry resources. Keep me in the road of righteousness, for His names sake. I pray this in Jesus' name,
