Almighty God, I am so grateful for your love and the salvation you brought me to accept. I ask for guidance through your Holy Spirit in the relationships I form and in the conversations that happen. Show me how to bring up what your gospel means to me. Give me the words to express the changes you made in me for the better. Help me speak of the eternal hope I have because of what Christ did on the cross. He suffered great agony for the sake of the ecstasy of the resurrection. Jesus transformed the agony of my past into the ecstasy of my relationship with him. I now live in him and for his purposes. I praise your perfect plan in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will for me. Amen.

“If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” (John 15: 10-111 ESV)
