1. Devotional Bible Verse:

 “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” – 1 Timothy 4:12 

Reflection: Reflect on the qualities of a praying leader as outlined in Acts 6:4 and how our pastor’s leadership in prayer can impact the spiritual growth of the church. Through prayer and encouragement, we can empower our pastor to lead by example in prayer, fostering spiritual growth and unity within the church.

EGW Quote:Why should the sons and daughters of God be reluctant to pray, when prayer is the key in the hand of faith to unlock heaven’s storehouse, where are treasured the boundless resources of Omnipotence? Without unceasing prayer and diligent watching we are in danger of growing careless and of deviating from the right path. The adversary seeks continually to obstruct the way to the mercy seat, that we may not by earnest supplication and faith obtain grace and power to resist temptation. ” (Ellen G. White, Steps to Christ, p. 94)
