Praying from Hebrews 11:2 relating to Eldership, Approval, Faithfulness

Dear Lord, I claim the promise that the elders obtained approval by their faith. May my faith in you be strong and unwavering, so that I too may obtain your approval. Help me to trust in your plan for my life and to walk in obedience to your will. May my actions and words reflect your love and grace, and may I bring glory to your name. Thank you for the assurance that through faith, I too can obtain your approval. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Verse: For by this, the elders obtained approval.
Hebrews 11:2

This is a Promise. The verse is stating that the elders obtained approval through something, but it is not giving a command or instruction to the reader.
