OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 1 OCTOBER 2021 MESSAGE

In our Bible text for today, Paul in his letter to Timothy admonishes us to pray for leaders.

Praying for leaders is very necessary not just for the sake of the leaders but for the followers because the actions of the leaders would affect all.

So, what and how are we supposed to pray for leaders? We should pray for their character, their circle of friends particularly their advisers, the process of making decisions, their emotional well-being and their families.

All these and some other factors determine their performance as leaders. Note that not only do political leaders need to be prayed for; prayers should be made for spiritual leaders too.

Zechariah 13:7b says: “Smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.”

The devil knows that if he attacks the spiritual leader, the sheep will scatter, so, pray for them. You should also pray for the leaders of industries, those at the forefront of innovations, leaders in charge of the defence of the country et cetera.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 1 OCTOBER 2021 HYMN

WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS

1. What a Friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Ev’rything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear-
All because we do not carry
Ev’rything to God in prayer!

2. Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a Friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our ev’ry weakness,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

3. Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Saviour, still our refuge,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.
