Prayer to Go Preach!
Acts 8:5 New International Version (NIV)
5 Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Messiah there.
Lord we praise You and thank You for all that You have done and all that You will do, we pray that you would strengthen and guide us today.
Give us the courage like Phillip to GO and preach the gospel to everyone we encounter, help us to be as bold as lions and as soft as doves.
We pray for the heart to do whatever work You set before us, to witness to anyone You lead us to. There is no job too small, no place too dirty, no person unworthy of hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ! We will take off our white gloves, roll up our sleeves, and Do Whatever it takes!
We won’t sit by on the sideline any more, we will be active participants in this game of life. We are going to step up and DO WORK! We will have a whatever it takes mentality like Philip.
Lord we pray that like Phillip we will run our race and not be distracted by other people or other situations, we will run our race, stay in our lane and be the light You called us to be! We will keep our heart pure, so that our focus stays true. We won’t seek attention for the approval and applause of man, we are not in this to search for our own spot light in life! We are in this to Be The Light that You created us to be!
We thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit to guide us, to strengthen us, and to empower us for this purpose and calling. Help us to show others the gift of Your Holy Spirit and lead them into receiving the baptism of Your spirit!
Remind those who are feeling lonely, isolated, and abandoned today that they are not alone for You are with them always! That You will never leave them or forsake them, that You are their comfort in times of need, and that You are their Strong Tower for refuge! I pray that You would send support their way to encourage them that they aren’t alone in this life and that they have brothers and sisters in Christ that are here to support them and encourage them!
And Lord I pray that we would be so bold as to speak Your Truth in Your Love through the guidance of the Holy Spirit to those that You have placed in our life! So that those who hear the truth shall be set free, and that those who hear the Gospel would repent and call on You!
For it is by Your Truth that we know You are God, for those who worship You do so in Spirit and in Truth. Its not by “our” truth, or our opinion, or what others say, but only by Your word alone!
Lastly we ask that through our humble obedience to Your word and calling that we would see many turn their hearts to You in repentance and receive You as Lord, Savior, and Father in their life! Let us see a great harvest of souls won for the kingdom!
We ask all of this in Your Name, Jesus!
