Gracious God, you go before us to make a way where there seems to be none. Your Holy Spirit gives us the words to boldly speak your gospel. Paul proves that out, and even he asks for prayer for boldness to speak truth in the face of opposition. Increase my boldness to put on the shoes of readiness to share the gospel. Open my eyes to see opportunity. Open my mind to hear the words from you, Father. Open my mouth to speak your message. Your word does not return void. The result comes from your power, and nothing by my own efforts. Prepare me for where you lead me. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.” (Ephesians 6: 18-20 ESV)
