If only we understood it like we understand it now. We always regret the years that have gone by without our understanding.
We pray, Lord, that none of us would ever be ashamed of the one who was not ashamed of us. May we never be ashamed of Christ.
Help us to be bold and courageous in using our gift, accepting the suffering that may come because we know the power of our God.
Help us to keep our eyes on You, not on men.
Give us your perfect love.
Grant to us the discipline and self-control that we may life for the expansion of your Kingdom.
