Forgive me for living in fear, defeated by the decisions of our government, the mocking voices in the media and the liberal morality of our culture. Forgive me for my lack of boldness…for feeling like “fish out of water”, or for “not belonging”. I do not condone the principles or practices of this world and while I’m here, I wish to be a “fisher of men” as Jesus commissioned His Disciples.
Please help me to be Your “Light”, shining in this very dark world in which we live. May I be found faithful to the task and opportunities You provide for me to share the “Good News” of Your forgiveness. Use me to present Your salvation to all who cross my path. Always be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about your hope.
Scripture: “…Always be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about the hope that is in you.” I Peter 3:15
