"Prayer does not change God, but it changes those who pray."

–Adapted from Soren Kierkegaard

One of the Wednesday night classes offered last Fall explored the book Lead Like Jesus Revisited. Despite being a diverse group, we all shared something in common—each of us was searching for something more in our lives through our faith and our works. To get the most out of the class, the book required us to engage in honest introspection and group discussions required us to be open and vulnerable with each other. Through sharing, discussing, and praying over each other’s concerns, doubts, weaknesses, and insecurities, we found strength, hope, and reassurance that we are just the latest in a long line of flawed people who wish to answer God’s call to action. We all know people inside and outside of our church family who seek something more in and for their lives. This month, let’s pray for the Holy Spirit to transform their doubts, vulnerability, and insecurities into strength, hope, comfort, and action. 

Ideas for prayer are shared from the Lead Like Jesus Study Group for each day of February. Feel free to add additional prayers that come to your mind and heart for people and situations in our local church, The United Methodist Church, the global church, and the wider world.
