Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel. Ephesians 6:19
The request for prayer is common in Scripture. It should also be common in our daily lives. We ask people we know to pray for us, just as they ask us to pray for them.
And when we pray, we can think of a lot of different things to ask for. We may look for help in our careers, personal relationships, marriages and finances. But how many of us request help to find others who need to hear about Jesus?
That is a bold prayer. Sadly, though, we may go weeks, months or even years without sharing how Christ has influenced our lives.
If you have not had a chance to share your story, or maybe it’s been a while since you’ve opened up about your faith, I encourage you to pray that bold prayer. Ask God to bring that opportunity to you. And when he identifies that person in your life, pray that you “will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel.”
Dear God, thank you for giving us the avenue of prayer where we can ask for help. I first ask that you help me to be bold in sharing my faith. I also ask that you identify someone to me who needs to hear my story of how I came to know you. And when you do, I pray that you will give me the words to say. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
