The Prayer of a Leader

If I am a leader, how should I pray?

“[Jesus] said to them, ‘The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those in authority over them are called benefactors. But not so with you. Rather, let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves. For who is the greater, one who reclines at table or one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at table? But I am among you as the one who serves.'”
– Luke 22:25-27

The true leader’s prayer of thanks is not, “Thank You for these people to lead,” but rather, “Thank you for these people to serve.”

Indeed, the heart and essence of Christian leadership is Christ-like service, which places the good of the others above our own need for fulfillment and control.
