Re: Verse reading–Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13; Hebrews 13:17-18 (day three)
“Pray for us.”
There is nothing better that church leaders can ask of their congregations. The request for prayer places leaders in the posture of humility and honesty before the people, and it acknowledges limitations that only God can help leaders go beyond. And there is nothing better that congregations can do than to pray for their leaders. Such prayer reminds congregations that the church will represent God’s kingdom to a world that’s afraid no one is running the universe.
