Boldness: Speaking the Truth
The truth of Jesus Christ often goes against the culture and beliefs of the people. It can take great courage to speak the truth of Christ to those who hate what He stands for.
Sometimes, following Jesus means facing persecution and dangers to proclaim who He is. Please ask God to give courage to those who minister for His name's sake.
Ac 23:11 The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, "Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome."
Father, You alone are God and there is no one else like You. The earth is Yours and everything in it, the world and all who live in it. Let Your mighty hand of grace and mercy be extended to bless Your servant.
Lord, just as you encouraged Paul and gave him grace to testify in Jerusalem, I ask that You would give Bana, Baza of Nigeria
the grace to speak boldly in Your name. Cause courage to rise up in his heart and empower his words with boldness, that he might proclaim all the truth of Your word. In Jesus name, I rebuke the spirit of fear that would hinder Bana, Baza of Nigeria
from freely testifying that Jesus is Lord.
