Who can you honor today?

Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:12

When you think of a spiritual leader that positively impacted your life, who comes to mind? Maybe it’s a church leader. Maybe it’s a mentor who’s inspired you. Maybe it’s a friend or family member who helped your faith grow stronger.

How would your life look if they weren’t a part of it?

The past few years have been challenging for Christian leaders around the world. Everything we’ve faced, they’ve gone through, too—but they’ve also carried the burdens of people just like us.

What would happen if millions of people across the global YouVersion Community committed to praying for the people who’ve encouraged us?

Let’s find out.

Today, let’s honor the people who selflessly serve us by praying together for them.

A Prayer for Christian Leaders

God,

Thank You for placing Christian leaders in my life who love You and care about me. I have been shaped by their wisdom, compassion, kindness, and selfless love.

Today, I ask that You would show me how I can bless these leaders, just like they have blessed me. Let my gratitude remind them that they are seen, valued, and known.

Encourage them when they feel worn out, and renew their strength when they’re overwhelmed. Give rest to those who need it, and remind them of Your promises. Bless their families, strengthen their ministries, and expand their influence—for Your glory, and their good.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen
