August 22 – Evening


praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.

(Ephesians 6:18-20)


Dear God,

You have called us to pray at all times and in every circumstance, to stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all believers. You have given us the privilege to intercede on behalf of others and to lift up our needs and desires to You. Help us to be mindful of the power of prayer and the importance of seeking Your will in all things. Grant us the faith to trust in Your sovereign plan and the patience to wait for Your perfect timing.

We also pray for the boldness to speak Your word fearlessly as we ought to. Give us the courage to share the gospel with those who do not know You and to proclaim Your truth wherever we go. Equip us with Your Spirit so that we may be effective witnesses for Your kingdom. May we always stand firm in our faith and rely on Your strength to face any opposition or persecution that may come our way. We can do nothing apart from You, so we ask for Your guidance and empowerment as we fulfill Your commission to make disciples of all nations.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
