Pray 1 Peter 5:1-4 (Prayers for Elders)

Take a moment to pray these scriptures over someone today. You may want to READ or LISTEN to the chapter before you begin. 

1 Peter 5:2     May ______, an elder, be a shepherd of God’s flock that is under his/her care, serving as an overseer – not because he/she must, but because ______ is willing, as God wants him/her to be. May ______ not be greedy for money, but be eager to serve.

1 Peter 5:3      May ______ not lord it over those entrusted to him/her, but be an example to the flock.

1 Peter 5:4     May ______ know that when the Chief Shepherd appears, he/she will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

QUESTION: What is a tangible way you can encourage or serve your church elders or leadership today?
