Though there were many insights that I enjoyed from the 10 different communicators who spoke on the subject of leadership/discipleship over a span of 12 hours, one of the most impactful ideas that I want to immediately apply to my life is to implement 3 prayers/confessions that Paul Tripp prays every morning.
The prayer/confessions are these:
- I am a person in desperate need of help today.
- Please send Your helpers my way.
- Grant me the humility to accept Your help when it comes.
These prayers will keep me aware of two very important truths (Hebrews 3:12-13), that if unattended to, will be the downfall of my life and my ministry:
- There is a presence and a power in remaining sin.
- Sin is deceitful.
I refuse to be blind to the sin that can/does so easily ensnare me. Praying these prayers will help towards that end.
I encourage you to pray them too.
