a heart for the people

Wilson Adams has an article in this month’s Biblical Insights about praying in the assembly.  In it he discusses a dozen things not often mentioned in prayers in the assembly…but should be.  Among them is this:

Pray for shepherds to have a heart for the people.  An elder remarked to me how he hears people praying for the elders to have wisdom in making decisions.  “It sounds like we’re CEO’s managing some company,” he said.  After noting that elders have to make decisions and certainly need wisdom, he went on to add, “I would love to hear brethren pray for us that we may have a heart for the people, because shepherding, after all, is about people.”
