Praying for the Elder Team // Read 1 Tim. 5:17; Acts 6:4; 1 Tim. 3:1-2; Titus 1:7; James 1:5
Lord, we thank you for the Elder team and we pray for them by name today: Mitchel Lee, Moses Alade, Trent Gladstone, Guy Bunyard, Paul Watston, Jimmy Wiggs and Chris Wolf. God, we ask you to guide and direct them as they direct the affairs of Grace Community Church; give them wisdom in all that they do. May they wholeheartedly give their attention to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Lord, we ask you to keep them above reproach, devoted to their families, temperate, self-controlled, respectable and hospitable. May they be gentle and honest as they interact with people. We thank you for their lives, Lord, and ask for you to bless them and keep them and to shine your face upon them and bring them peace.
1 Tim. 5:17
17 The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching.
4 and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.”
1 Tim. 3:1-2
7 Since an overseer manages God’s household, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain.
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
