Make me a leader.

Lord, make me a leader.

Not just a cheerleader.

Not just a leader at school.

Not just in front of people I know well.

But a leader everywhere. All the time.

Not a boss. Not a controller. Not a #1 MVP. Those aren’t the things I strive for.

Make me someone that people can look up to.

Make me someone that people can ask questions and get an honest, helpful answer.

Make me someone that raises others up, even if they’re doing better than me.

Make me someone that doesn’t seek attention, but seeks You’re own heart. That seeks followers for You.

Make me someone that points others to You, instead of myself.

Make me someone that doesn’t try to be better than other people, but tries to help others be better.

Make me someone that tries to be more like You.

Make me someone that helps others when no one is watching, and doesn’t feel the need to tell anybody.

Make me someone that leads the way, not point toward the direction and say, “go.”

Make me someone that loves the people that don’t love me.

Make me someone that respects the people that don’t respect me.

Make me someone that pushes others to do their best, but doesn’t push them over the cliff.

Make me someone that doesn’t spread lies, but spreads truth, goodness, and love.

Make me someone that isn’t afraid to stand up for myself, others, and most importantly, You.

Make me someone that will cry with those who are crying, and laugh with those who are laughing.

Make me someone that pours my heart into the things that matter.

Make me someone that shuts down gossip and rumors instead of feeding it.

Make me someone that doesn’t compare myself, but applauds others and feels true happiness for them.

Make me someone that stands up for those that aren’t strong enough yet. Make me someone that speaks for those that don’t have a tongue. Make me someone that is a messenger for you.

Make me someone that is imperfect, but knows they are redeemed. Someone that loves You with my whole heart, and shows it every second of every day. Make me strong. Make me full of love and life.

Make me a leader.

I said not JUST a cheerleader. It still is a leader though ;).
