Day 351: Prayer for the saints to proclaim and live out the glad tidings of the gospel

Pray that the saints would proclaim the glad tidings of the gospel, the good news that the world needs today, and that they would also live the gospel, becoming a pattern of the glad tidings that they spread (Psa. 68:11 and notes 111 and 112; Isa. 40:9; 1 Thes. 1:5 and note 51).

Psa. 68:11—The Lord gives the command; / The women who bear the glad tidings are a great host.

Isa. 40:9—Go up to a high mountain, / O Zion, who brings glad tidings; / Lift up your voice with power, / O Jerusalem, who brings glad tidings; / Lift it up; do not be afraid. / Say to the cities of Judah, / Behold your God!

1 Thes. 1:5—For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance, even as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake.
