A prayer to relinquish liberty to win people for Christ

A Christian calls themselves a servant for the Lord, but what about being a slave? The Apostle Paul considered himself a slave, but not to the Lord as his Master, but a slave to everyone. He did so for one very important reason. Paul was willing to sacrifice his freedom for the sake of others in order …

A prayer on how to be an effective spokesman for God

Sometimes, words get stuck at the end of our tongue and we just can’t quite grasp a hold of it to share.  It is during these times that we wish we had a spokesman to speak for us.  Christians do have a spokesman and something we will investigate further as we continue our series, “Prayers …

A prayer to keep our faith vibrant and active

A way to keep our faith vibrant and active is to remind people of all that we have in Christ. We can share our love with others in practical ways, but also take the time to refute false teaching with love and respect.

Epaphroditus knew exactly …

A prayer to proclaim — even when we don’t feel like it

The psalms in the Bible expresses our soul. It sings both during the good times when our spirits soar and during difficult times when we look for God in the depths of our uncertainty. Our faith is an ongoing song that longs to be heard. We read in Psalm 96, “Sing to the LORD a new …

A prayer for patience when sharing God’s Word with others
