Most of our posts on this blog focus on the leadership aspects of ministry – setting a mission and vision, building and mobilizing volunteer and staff teams, the challenges of leading a volunteer-based organization, financial management, and the like. But we never forget that the soul of the spiritual leader is of primary importance.
With that in mind, we offer this prayer – rooted in the 139th Psalm – which can see us through each day of ministry – the great ones and the tough ones. It’s reprinted from the blog of Leighton Ford Ministries – www.leightonfordministries.org
Drawn from the 139th Psalm, this prayer has helped many to order their days and move through them with an awareness of the presence of God.
“Search me and know my heart”
Is my heart centered right as I begin today?
“Test me and know my restless thoughts”
Recognize and rest from thoughts which will not let go.
“See if there is any hurtful way in me”
What hurts I have caused, or received, which need forgiving?
“Lead me in the way everlasting”
Rest in God’s hands.
