Lord, I Need Your Courage—1 Thessalonians 2:2

Today’s Scripture Reading: Acts 17:16-18:3, 1 Thessalonians 1:1-5:11

Heavenly Father, I’m not a doomsday prophet but it’s easy to see the day is coming when a line in the sand will be drawn and I will have a choice, Your Son or serious negative consequences.

Lord, I want the courage of Paul, Silas, and Timothy.

You know how badly we had been treated at Philippi just before we came to you and how much we suffered there. Yet our God gave us the courage to declare his Good News to you boldly, in spite of great opposition. —1 Thessalonians 2:2

Jesus, the last couple of nights as I’ve drifted off to sleep, thoughts have crossed my mind about what it would happen if I had to choose You or death.

Jesus, You chose me over death. I want to have the courage to stand tall and strong for You, in spite of the great opposition.

Holy Spirit, You know the future, equip me with supernatural courage to boldly declare the good news of Jesus whatever the consequences.

In the mighty Name of Jesus. Amen and Amen!
