Lord Jesus, you are Messiah. You are Emmanuel, God with us. Your gospel cannot be hindered by the evil one. Continue reminding me that above all I must pray for the salvation of those who do not know you as their Lord and Savior. May I be found worthy of your calling and faithfully working for your gospel in your sight. I pray humbly and with reverence for who you are. I lift my eyes to your glory in your name and authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“For what is our hope or joy or crown of boasting before our Lord Jesus at his coming? Is it not you? For you are our glory and joy.” (1 Thessalonians 2:19-20 ESV)
