"Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with {an attitude of} thanksgiving; praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak. Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Let your speech always be with grace, {as though} seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person (Col 4:2-6, NASB)."

Lord, help me to devote myself to prayer. To pray without ceasing. To be diligent and vigilant in the holy place of prayer. Help me to be alert, as a watchman should, that I might see any hint of the works of the flesh in me, my loved ones, and my brothers and sisters in Christ – that I will be able to spot the weak areas where the enemy will attack and build a wall of defense in advance. Through prayer, preparing for coming battles; faithfully and courageously fighting current battles…all the while, fortifying any cracks and repairing any damages that already exist.

Father, I ask you to help me keep an attitude of thankfulness. Forgive me for every time I’ve taken Your blessings for granted – every time I’ve abused Your grace. Let me be ever grateful for the abundant mercy You’ve shown me. You are worthy of all praise, glory, and honor. O, God, let me be like the one leper (out of the ten) who returned to give thanks to his Healer.

O, most Glorious Savior, I pray that you would open a door for me today - an opportunity to share your Glorious Gospel with an unbeliever or a word of encouragement and exhortation with one of Your wounded lambs. I pray also that You would give me understanding and enable me to speak in the way that You would have me to - that I might, by your grace and through the power of Your Holy Spirit, make clear the wondrous mystery of Christ and Him crucified, buried, risen, ascended, and seated at Your right hand – soon to return in the clouds with power and great glory.

Help me, dear Lord, to conduct myself with wisdom toward all men - especially unbelievers. And let me make the most of every opportunity that You give me - to witness and proclaim the Good News of Your salvation - faithfully, fervently, and completely...leaving nothing unsaid that You want said. Give me grace, to speak with humbleness and compassion. Boldness, to declare Your Word fearlessly, with all confidence. And knowledge, to know how I should respond to any questions Your people may have. In the precious, Holy name of Christ my Savior, I pray...Amen.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
