Father God, you are Yahweh Nissi, the banner over us. Help us to stand under your banner and boldly proclaim the story of Jesus in love and reverence. Let this love in our hearts spread to the nations, because Jesus is our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. I lift my prayer for your peace that passes all understanding in the name and authority of Jesus, according to our good and perfect will. Amen.

“Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel.” (Philippians 1:15-16 ESV)
