Almighty God, you turn the hearts of the kings like the rivers. You change minds and save souls with your powerful and all-encompassing love. Open wide the doors in the hearts of those we encounter with your gospel. May we have a sure and effective pathway to gain them for the kingdom through our friendship and loving kindness. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, who made a way where there seemed to be none, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“…for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” (1 Corinthians 16:9 ESV)
