Monday, June 11, 2007

May the LORD, the God of the spirits of all mankind, appoint a man over this community to go out and come in before them, one who will lead them out and bring them in, so the LORD's people will not be like sheep without a shepherd.
— Numbers 27:16-17

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Wow! For any city, county, or country electing new leadership, or church selecting elders or ministers, what greater prayer could there be?

My Prayer...

O Father, please forgive us for choosing leaders for the wrong reasons and with the wrong character. Please raise up leaders at every level of community that have integrity of character and a deep concern for people. In the name of the Savior, Jesus. Amen.
