Prayer for December 5: Please pray with me. God who is good news, we long to hear your news. We long to celebrate the good news you bring. You remind us that power is temporary for leaders. They hold it for only a time. And that time shall pass. We thank you for this – especially when people suffer from poor leadership. We ask that you be with leaders – give them the wisdom to know that they are temporary, that their role is to do what is best for the people they lead. Give them the courage to do this. Amen.
