After writing one of my previous posts about fighting against apathy in the Church, I realised that I had missed out a very important role that we (Christians) can play to make a difference.
That role that all of us who are members of any church should be doing on a regular basis is to PRAY for our leadership on an individual and corporate level.
Covering leadership in prayers
Especially in these times where we are witnessing more and more leaders (including secular organisations) falling under the bondage of sin, the more we need to pray for them.
“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth”
1 Timothy 2:1-4
Ultimately, we need to recognise that by default we are embroiled in a spiritual battle that is waged and won through prayers.
We need more godly leaders
Apart from prayer being the change catalyst in fending off apathy in the Church, I also do believe when we pray for our leadership we are exhibiting the highest honour towards them.
With the kingdom of God always in great lack of godly leaders, I’m certain that such love and support towards leadership can only create a dynamic and favourable environment for more of such leaders to arise for the next generation.
