Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

Father, You are the One who created everything in the world. We confess that the Holy Spirit spoke through David concerning how the world would react to Christ the Messiah. Why are the nations in an uproar of the mere mention of His name? Why do people conspire to squelch the name of Jesus? Why is His beloved name politically incorrect? Why do people fight against You when there is no way they can win? We admit that powerful leaders world-wide have set themselves against Christ Your Anointed One. It is not far-fetched Father, Pilate consented to the death of Jesus. He conspired with the Jewish religious leaders. These people did not know what they were doing. They did not understand that they were fulfilling prophecy. They did not understand that His death was a part of Your plan. Now Father, listen to what they are saying, “Speak no more in the name of Jesus,” they say. They are trying to make us afraid. They want to intimidate us and keep us silent. We are Your servants Father; our will is to obey Your command. Help us to say what You want us to say. Help us to be brave by showing us Your power. Make sick people well. Cause miraculous signs to happen by the authority of Jesus, Your most Holy Servant. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!
[Prayer is based on Acts 4]
