Prayer For Courage In The Christian Life

Heavenly Father, I love You and thank You for all that You have done for me – thank You for dying for me and taking the punishment that I deserve. Father God, please help me.. for when I am on my own I want to tell the whole world about You, but when I am in company with other people, I just freeze up and get so tongue-tied and am so lost for words.

I feel I am letting You down by not saying anything about You, and remaining silent.. when I should be lifting up the Lord Jesus and telling everyone I meet, the message of salvation by grace through faith.

Give me courage I pray to open my mouth and speak the truth to whomsoever I may come into contact. Release my tongue and allow me to speak forth what is in my heart – to your praise and glory. Lord I know that without You I can do nothing, but I also believe that I can do all things through Christ Who gives me the strength and courage.

So use my life I pray, and give me the courage to be a good and faithful witness to Jesus, in word and in deed - to His praise and glory,
