Mighty God in heaven, you are sovereign. You hold sway over the nations. You hold sway over our days. Open our hearts to pay attention to what your Word says. Bring many sons to glory. Bring them singly. Bring them by families. Bring whole communities to the saving knowledge of you, Father. Be glorified in the outcome. I ask in the precious name and powerful authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“The Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what was said by Paul. 15 And after she was baptized, and her household as well, she urged us, saying, “If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay.” And she prevailed upon us.” (Acts 16: 14b-15 ESV)
