“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.”
God, encourage the laymen of your Church to render the honor due to their leaders with full hearts and not just by way of lip service. Release the leaders from the requirement of perfection, so that they may lead their flocks to pursue your kingdom with appropriate boldness, even if they must risk embarrassment to do it. May your church leaders receive the honor that is due to their office from each member of their flock.
