Gracious God, let those we contact today see a positive difference in us. Let it prompt them to ask why that difference is, and give us your words to explain the joy within us. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, who sent the Holy Spirit, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15 ESV)
