Prepare Your Public Prayers – Here is D. A. Carson’s helpful advice for people who lead in public prayer.

Expository Living: Sober-Mindedness – Dan Dumas writes, “Immaturity can undermine leadership as effectively as anything. People will follow leaders they think are taking them somewhere. Immaturity has no plans to go anywhere. The Bible’s antidote to immaturity is sober-mindedness.”
