Godly Preparation For Leadership In Ministry

Dear Lord, You know the desire of my heart, and how You have been gently leading me to this very point in my life. Thank You, for all the lessons I have learned so far and make me willing, I pray, to continue to be ready to listen to Your gentle promptings.

Lord, I come to You as I make preparation for the next step in my life and ministry. Lord, I want to remain right in the centre of Your will and ask that by Your love and grace, You would continue to give me Your gracious promoting along my path.

As I prepare to move into this new position of leadership in this exciting ministry, keep me low before the cross. May all I say and do be guided by You alone. Keep me from hankering after the praises of men, but rather, Lord, give me a teachable Spirit that comes from You, so that I may be pleasing in Your sight.

Endow me with wisdom and give me the servant spirit of Christ that I may lead by example. Keep me from compromising the truth of Your Word, and may I run the race that is set before me with patient endurance, looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith, in Whose name I pray,
