We pray that You will pour out upon the leaders of Your Church that spirit of self-denying service

O gracious God, we remember before you today your servant and apostle James, first among the Twelve to suffer martyrdom for the Name of Jesus Christ; and we pray that you will pour out upon the leaders of your Church that spirit of self-denying service by which alone they may have true authority among your people; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

    Amen. Self denial is so unmodern. I just read 1 Peter 2–he says if an employee is unjustly treated and takes it well, God is pleased. The Tozer devotional today said Christians never complain about unfair treatment to them. They are like Christ. He had major unfairness in His life and did not complain.
