Morning Prayer Guide - Friday

Read: Isaiah 43:8-15 and Psalm 126

Usually, the best person to ask about something is one who has experienced it first hand. For instance, the best way to learn how to knit is to ask someone who knits. Asking a non-knitter would be useless.

Today’s passage talks about telling others about our experiences with God. God is saying, “Go ahead. Put the word out. Let people tell what they have seen with their own eyes; what they have heard with their own ears.” God wants us to be vocal about our experiences!

How vocal are you about God? It’s easy to sweep God under the rug, to not mention him to others. It can be hard to talk about him with other disciples, and even harder with non-believers. Ask God to show you how best to do this. You may find the following prayer helpful:

Lord God, teach us how to tell others about you. Grant us grace to overcome our fears, so that we might spread the good news of redemption to all the world; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
