“10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” ~ Galatians 1:10
We first and foremost come to You giving You all the praise, glory, and honor as the one and only true and living God. We thank You for salvation — sending Your Son to die on the cross for our sins so that we can have eternal life with You in heaven. Please forgive us of our sins, and we thank You in advance for helping us to overcome our weaknesses and shortcomings.
Lord, we come with a special prayer today that You will give us the courage to share Your Word with others. Lord, some of us you have called to the pulpit, while others of us are called to minister Your Word at work, at school, or on the playground. Father, when we do so, thank You for helping us to not only share about the favor, blessings, and prosperity You shower us with but also the consequences we experience for failing to follow after You. May we share the wonders of the scriptures in full and never in part — always seeking to portray Your Word accurately and never purposefully skewed — so we do not hinder the spiritual growth of others.
It is in the magnificent name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we pray. Amen.
