Leaders to Pray

Spiritual leaders should be men and women of prayer (James 5:16-18). Relying on our own strength to accomplish things is worldliness. True spirituality is constant dependence on God for everything, from the mundane to the earth-shaking (Philippians 4:6-7). When confronted with a crisis or a crucial decision, the spiritual leader’s first impulse would be to breathe a prayer to God. He would then spend an extended time of prayer as well as call on others for prayer. He, whose first impulse when confronted with a crisis is to immediately call a meeting in order to discuss the matter, is a worldly leader.
