A Leader's Prayer
Leadership is difficult to define.
Lord, let us be the ones to define it with justice.
Leadership is like a handful of water.
Lord, let us be the people to share it with those who thirst.
Leadership is not about watching and correcting.
Lord, let us remember it is about listening and connecting.
Leadership is not about telling people what to do.
Lord, let us find and provide what people need.
Leadership is less about the love of power
And more about the power of love.
Lord, let us be affirmed by the servant leadership we witness in your son, Jesus.
Let our greatest passion be compassion,
Our greatest strength love,
Our greatest victory , the reward of peace.
In leading, let us never fail to follow You, and in loving, let us never fail to love as you did.
Thanks to the Diocese of Brooklyn CYO for sharing this prayer!
