All knowing God, Creator, Redeemer, thank you for the writings of the eyewitnesses to Jesus. Lord Jesus, thank you for making yourself known to the apostles. Thank you for their boldness to speak your name and spread your story in the face of opposition and persecution. Grant us holy boldness to express our own testimonies of what you have done for us. We love you and desire to follow the Great Commission to tell the world of you. We bring our request in humility and reverence in your name above all names, and power that exceeds every other, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols.” (1 John 5: 20-21 ESV)
