Hebrews 13:17

Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.

Most Precious Heavenly Father,

We are a people who want to do our own thing and forget those around us. Help us remember to be thoughtful and compassionate to others, considering their needs before ours. Remind us to be obedient and work diligently for all those in authority over us. Help us to be joyful in our service to the leaders you have given us, and remind us to not to complain about our circumstances for you are ultimately in control. Grant great wisdom to those in authority over us so they lead in a godly manner.

Amen.
