Jesus, let our love for you outweigh all else. Embolden us to confess our faith even in the face of scorn. Living the gospel truth divides between believers and unbelievers. May we stand firm in our decision to love you more than life, more than family, more than friendship and more than belonging to earthly things. I ask your Holy Spirit for strength in your precious name and powerful authority, according to the will of the Father.

“for they loved the glory that comes from man more than the glory that comes from God.” (John 14:43 ESV)
