A Prayer for a New Season

“Thirty Ways to Lead Different” celebrates Arrow Leadership’s 30th anniversary with a 30-week series providing insights and practical tools to help you lead with Jesus at the center.

May this prayer bring you fresh focus and strength to live and Lead Different at a time when many are weary and discouraged.

Dear God,

I am not enough.

I am not enough to earn my way with a holy God.

I am not enough to withstand the attacks of the evil one.

I am not enough to meet all the expectations of myself or anyone else.

I am not enough to fix the problems in my own life or the lives of others.

I am not enough to reverse the decline of the Church or untangle the messes of the world.

Please forgive me for trying to live and lead otherwise.

By your grace, I turn my eyes from myself and from the wind and the waves around me.

By your grace, I choose to focus my eyes on Jesus, the author and pioneer of faith.

Only Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.

Only Jesus conquered sin and overcame the grave.

Only through Jesus am I rescued and redeemed.

Only through Jesus am I made truly alive and free.

Only in Jesus can I find deep contentment and completeness.

Only in Jesus can I live and lead with enough strength and courage.

Only with Jesus is there real hope for miraculous change in me, in others and in the world.

Only with Jesus can I look to an inheritance that will not perish, spoil or fade.

Thank you, Jesus, for seeing me, loving me and inviting me to follow you.

By your grace, to live and Lead Different, I choose to be to led more by Jesus.

By your grace, to live and Lead Different, I long to live and lead more like Jesus.

By your grace, to live and Lead Different, I desire to lead more to Jesus.

I pray these things in the name of Jesus, the name at which every knee will bow and every tongue confess that he is Lord.

Cheering you on to live and Lead Different!
