Praise God for your pastor’s leadership and pray that he will make godly decisions. Pray
that he will lead with a shepherd’s heart, and that he will always speak the truth in love.
So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours? 1 Kings 3:9
Shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness. 1 Pet 5:2
Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; if service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. Rom 12:6-8
Then I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding. Jer 3:15
