Prayer for 1 Peter 3:15

“but set apart the Messiah as Lord in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.”

Heavenly Father, I thank You that I have been redeemed by the blood of Christ, and my desire is to be fully sanctified unto Him, and to offer my body as a living sacrifice - holy and acceptable unto God. Guard my heart and guide my speech I pray.. and give me wisdom to be able to give an answer for the hope that is in me.. and to give a defence for my trust in Christ and the blessed hope that I have in Him. And Lord, I pray that by the power of Your Holy Spirit that I would be able to answer everyone, who asks me about my faith in Christ - in gentleness and reverence - to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
