Gracious Lord, raise up your spokespeople for the gospel. Give them the power of your voice that made the troops and crowd back up and fall to the ground the night you were arrested. Raise up more local, in-country, voices to tell of you. Bring your holy power to bear in this present darkness. Let the gospel go forth! It will not return void. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“When Jesus said to them, ‘I am he,’ they drew back and fell to the ground.” (John 18: 6 ESV)
