Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of the apostle Paul, who spent his life teaching the good news of the gospel of God, so that men would hear the truth of the gospel of grace, and be saved. Give me a heart for the lost, and help me to meet the people with whom I come in contact, at their point of need, and present the gospel to them clearly and without hesitation. We pray that many would come to faith in Christ today. Raise us more men and women who will share the good news of the gospel of God in every nation and city, so that many will hear and believe that Jesus died for their sin, that He rose again and that by faith in Him, their sins are forgiven, and eternal life is their portion. This we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You that my sins were judged at the cross and that there is now no condemnation for me because I am IN Christ. But I realise that there are many that remain dead in their sins. I pray that You will use me to tell those that You place in my path that Christ died for their sins, that He was buried and rose again so that all who believe on Him will not perish but have everlasting life. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
