Day 281: Prayer for the saints to proclaim the glad tidings concerning Christ
Pray that the saints would proclaim the glad tidings concerning the wonderful person of Christ and His unsearchable riches (Luke 2:10-11; Acts 5:42; Rom. 1:1-4; Eph. 3:8).
Luke 2:10-11—And the angel said to them, Do not be afraid; for behold, I announce to you good news of great joy, which will be for all the people, because today a Savior has been born to you in David’s city, who is Christ the Lord.
Acts 5:42—And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they did not cease teaching and announcing the gospel of Jesus as the Christ.
Rom. 1:1-4—Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, a called apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, which He promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning His Son, who came out of the seed of David according to the flesh, who was designated the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness out of the resurrection of the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Eph. 3:8—To me, less than the least of all saints, was this grace given to announce to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ as the gospel.
