Day 25


Call to Prayer

God, I am slow to pray, and yet you call me to come boldly to your throne of grace. Though I often stumble, you receive my prayers, not because of eloquent words, but because of Christ. Help me now. Amen.


Psalm 40:4–5

Blessed is the man who makes
the LORD his trust,
who does not turn to the proud,
to those who go astray after a lie!
You have multiplied, O LORD my God,
your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;
none can compare with you!
I will proclaim and tell of them,
yet they are more than can be told. 

Read Acts 9:20-31

Prayer of Response

God, pour out your Spirit in power. Increase our faith, not our cynicism. Increase our hope, not our fear. As we speak, increase us all the more in strength. Show us again that your are the God who works mightily in our midst. We pray boldly for you to move! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
