Prayer Precedes Leadership Selection

Prayer Produces Leadership
Look at this account in the life of Jesus, our Lord and example, in selecting leaders:

Luke 6: 12 ¶ And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
13 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;

Notice how Jesus chose His disciples here: after all night prayer. We cannot choose leaders based upon outward qualifications, because God knows what is inside of them, and what He is forming them into.

1Sa 16:7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
Important decisions must be preceded by prayer!
Let’s pray:
Father God, give me wisdom today, as to decisions I need to make that are of the highest priority to you. May I seek your face, until you show me exactly what you would have me to do in these, in your name I pray, Lord Jesus, Amen!”
