It’s always been easy for me to recognize the traits of a good leader because I can associate their actions with the betterment of myself. I often gravitate to those that are willing to be vulnerable, admitting their short falls, and willing to share their struggles. These are not easy environments for any leader but they will tell you that its the exposure that opens the door to enlightenment. We are inspired by the stories we hear of triumph yet grounded by stories of disparity. When I find myself in these moments of despair, I find personally find strength in Fellowship and Faith. These things I know, yet too often I avoid the uncomfortable environment.
My child hood was blessed with a number of great male role models. Grounded by their Faith, they always took the lead by bringing our large families together for prayer. It’s time I get out of my comfort zone and step up to the plate. I was willing to get uncomfortable this morning with hope that I may have the same impact on others as my elders have had on me. Today was the first day I prayed out loud, and from the heart for all to hear…. how liberating it was.
“Comfort the afflicted, afflict the comfortable.”
We pause this morning to give thanks for the opportunity to gather on this beautiful morning
We give thanks for this group of men.
We thank you for their leadership, their desire to be better men for their loved ones, friends, and communities.
We ask that you continue to give us the strength and courage we need to be vulnerable, to test our limits each day and break free from our comfort zones so that we may experience this life to its full capacity.
We pray for our friends and family mentioned this morning. May you cushion their fall, heal their wounds, and lift them up.
In your name we pray,
