Day 33

A Prayer For Mission

"And Jesus came and spoke with them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen."

Matthew 28:18-20

Lord Jesus,

Your selfless act of love and grace by choosing to die on the cross for our sins divinely established a new covenant with those who would receive Your gift of salvation. Heavenly Father, by Your great love and mercy, You call us to follow You into the world to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Holy Spirit, empower and equip us to be bold about sharing our faith with those we encounter today in a spirit of gentleness and respect. Holy Spirit, give us a heart of compassion for the lost and a passion to spread Your Word and the message of love and grace in the gospel to those in our neighborhoods, our community and even to the ends of the earth. Thank You for Your abiding presence and peace that rests upon us and strengthens us as a people on mission with You. We ask this in the name of our Triune King — Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
