The Jesus Renewal: “Come Away with Me”

A Daily Leadership Essentials Quote
from Veritas Leadership Journal at


Church Boards: Consider refreshing your church’s staff by sending them on a get-away for renewal, beyond the easy reach of those whom they serve on a daily basis. Jesus planned that with His own Apostles who had just returned from a ministry tour.

“The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to Him all they had done and taught. Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, He said to them,

Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.’

So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place.”

( djh / “Come Away with Me” / Mark 6:30-32 )

Soul-Pouring Prayer

The story of Hannah is a beautiful one for both men and women alike.

She had been unable to conceive a child, resulting in her feeling deeply troubled with “great anguish and grief.” But, she knew where to go, and on Whom she could call.

She went before the Lord, and poured out her heart and soul to Him. Even though Eli, the priest, misunderstood her condition and situation, she continued in the expression of her inner most being to the Lord.

“‘I am a woman who is deeply troubled… I was pouring out my soul to the Lord… I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.’

Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast.”

( 1 Samuel 1:15-18 )

Having finished her intimate time in prayer, she went on with her daily life. After her soul-pouring prayer, her countenance was brightened and her depression was lifted.

Oh, and she and her husband soon conceived a child. His name was Samuel, and he became one of the outstanding men of God whose life and ministry are recorded in scripture.

We are blessed today and Hannah was blessed back then because she engaged in Soul-Pouring Prayer.

What kind of blessings will be poured out upon your life… if you will pray like Hannah? What kind of blessings will be poured from Heaven upon the people around you… if you will pray like Hannah?

See you at the altar… of Soul-Pouring Prayer.



When Leadership Honors God…

A Daily Leadership Essentials Quote
from Veritas Leadership Journal at
by David J. Hall

Most everyone has a leadership influence on at least one person. A parent with a child, a youth with a younger sibling, a person who is looked up to by a peer, and these are just a few examples.

On the larger scale of leadership influence are church, business, and government leaders.

In whatever our roles might be, let’s lead and influence others in such a way that they are refreshed when they are touched by our influence.

“The God of Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me: ‘When one rules over people in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God, he is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth.’”

( djh / 2 Samuel‬ ‭23:3-4‬ )
