Leaders- Delegating and Removing Ourselves?

This is always my most difficult statement to make in regard to leader's and their prayer lives. It is important that Leaders appoint Elders in the church to assist with prayer and to organize other prayer teams. The biggest temptation with this is that we may stop praying altogether because we have delegated this task to others.

Why do I say this? I speak from experience on this. There is something that slowly begins to erode if we stop spending personal prayer time with God, for our personal life, the ministries we lead and for others in our community. When we delegate our entire prayer life to others, we are silently acknowledging, "God you are not important. I will let others take care of this part of ministry." Ouch!

To think about today- Do I have the mindset that others are praying, so I only spend time in prayer as a leader occasionally?

Just as Paul spoke these words to you, I speak these same words to you today. My dear brothers and sisters, may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Galatians 6:18
