PRAYER LEADER. "First of all then, I urge that petitions, prayers,requests and thanksgivings be offered to God for all people, for kings and all others who are in authority, that we may live a quiet and peaceful life with all reverence toward God and with proper conduct. This is good and it pleases God our savior who wants everyone to be saved and to come to know the truth."- 1 Timothy 2: 1-4. Who is a prayer leader? Biblically, a prayer leader is a born again Christian who not only leads prayer in Churches, retreat, bible schools, bible school college, bible institutes, and all other places sanctified for worship. A prayer leader also intercedes in prayer. He/She must be the one who's prayer life is worthy of emulation. In most Churches or organization, a prayer leader always belongs to a prayer ministry or a prayer group. Prayer is one of the strongest weapons which God has given to believers. You may not have money to give to the poor widow, but as a prayer leader, you can pray for God's intervention in her life. You may not be a medical doctor, but as a prayer leader, you can stand beside a sick person in his sick bed and bring Jehovah Rapha to intervene. You can stay five years without seeing a relative or a friend staying away, but as prayer leader, you can stand beside him through prayer. You may not be able to change a man's character, but as a prayer leader,you can change it when you pray for him. You can stand as prayer leader beside your Pastor when he is preparing his sermon. You can also stand beside him while he is delivering sermon in the alter through prayer. As a prayer leader, it is our duty to make intercession for our relations, rulers, friends and sundry. Everybody needs prayers, we do not have to be selfish while praying. We offered prayers for world leaders, prayers for the Church leaders and prayer for worshipers who are also leaders.
