Give us courage, dear Lord. Bolster us to speak of your goodness and mercy, holiness and power. Lead us in leadership. Grant us your wisdom and discernment. Give us courage and temper it with humility. May we speak only truth that glorifies you and not ourselves. I ask in your precious and powerful name, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.” (James 4:10 ESV)
