Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation, Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd.
— Numbers 27:16-17 (KJV)

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.
