Almighty God, help us fulfill your Great Commission to spread the gospel throughout the world. May it start within our friendships. May we shine your Holy Spirit to those around us so that it starts the conversation of why we live in your unspeakable joy. Give us the words. Keep us true to your honor and glory. Help us plant the seeds of faith that your Holy Spirit turns into salvation. Grant us your sweet spirit in the telling. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,” (1 Peter 3:15 ESV)
