Good morning Saint John’s students, faculty, and staff.  Let us pause in our day to pray. In today's gospel, Jesus reminds us of what it means to be a leader. The call to leadership is to serve others and put others' needs before oneself. Let us remember and pray for all our leaders that they may follow the path of servant leadership. 
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Dear God, All authority is Yours, but you have given authority to leaders to protect and guide us. Today, we ask that You would give all our leaders wisdom, discernment, strength, and resolve. Keep them healthy, safe, and rested so that they can continue to guide us through this troubling time. Give our government leaders wisdom to guide us. Give our spiritual leaders Your discernment on how to meet people’s needs as they continue to glorify Your name and encourage the Church. Give our civic leaders inspiration, courage, joy, and strength to meet the needs of their communities. And help us, as leaders in our communities, to display courage, hope, generosity, and kindness. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
Thank you and have a great day
