Target on Your Back - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series


Bible Verse: 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
“Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance. Show them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work. And live peacefully with each other.”

Reflect and Respond: Determine today how you will honor your leaders at home, at work, at church, and in the government, even if you don't agree with them. Pray for them in earnest.

Prayer: Father, You are the ultimate, almighty leader. May I honor your authority today by praying for these people: (name your leaders and pray for each that God might guard and guide them according to His truth.) In Jesus' name, amen.

Yes, very helpful. I made a list of leaders to pray for. The scripture says to honor my leaders and pray for them. Although I’ve probably read this verse many times I realize maybe I hadn’t taken it seriously.
Thank you very much for this lesson.

Lord Jesus, Your example of the way we should either lead or follow is the best way. Help me to honour my leaders and encourage them just as You honoured Your heavenly Father and received strength to go on when You prayed.
