Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 70

Scripture Passage: Numbers 12:1-10
Leaders Need Prayers
Moses was a great man but like many leaders, he was far from perfect. Miriam and Aaron, like many followers, took it upon themselves to point out his error in marrying an Ethiopian woman. They spoke to one another about their leader’s fault but never spoke to God, the one who could do make it right. Apostle Paul said in 1 Timothy 2:2, “First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.”
The lesson is this; because leaders are humans and prone to errors, they need our prayers. A wise person understands that a prayer for his leader is a prayer for himself as a leader’s wrong choice(s) may have a devastating effect on his life and destiny.
Prayer: Father, help me to pray for my leaders that as a leader I may enjoy the same grace.
