Prayer.

Here are 10 good prayers of an effective leader:

Dear Lord, grow my love for you so I will trust in You when I can’t see the path ahead clearly.
Dear Lord, help me not to say yes when no is the right answer.

Dear Lord, never allow my plan to get ahead of — or in the place of — Your plan.

Dear Lord, allow me to forgive easily, hold no grudges or bitterness, and live in and extend to others the grace You have provided to me.

Dear Lord, provide me with courage and conviction to face my fears and critics and lead people to bigger realities of Your will than today.

Dear Lord, grant me wisdom to make decisions big and small and conviction to follow You when it contradicts my desires or the demands of others.

Dear Lord, help me guard my heart , overcome temptation, and keep my character and reputation above reproach.

Dear Lord, give me patience with people, the pace of progress, and with things I can’t understand.

Dear Lord, help me communicate with clarity, consistency, and competence.

Dear Lord, help me to love people and use my influence for the good of others and Your glory.

In Jesus name, Amen.

  1. Ron, thanks. This was a great reminder this morning. I’m new to consistently blogging my thoughts and sharing things with people. It helps to be reminded of Gods work in all of this.

    Great prayer to come back to.

  2. "Dear Lord, may no one in my church ever respect me higher than the level of respect I receive from my wife and kids." This is my prayer to be an effective pastor. Thank you for this post, Ron. God Bless!
