Dear Lord, thank you for choosing me out of millions to be your beloved child. Now that I have received your free gift of Eternal Life, I want to share your love with others. Give me your wisdom and strength to share the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost. Please work in the hearts of the souls that I contact through my ministries. Help me to understand the truths in the Bible and share the same with others, with grace. Help me to live a life worthy of your high calling. Help me to show your majesty, not only in words, but also in deeds. I acknowledge that salvation and sanctification are your work of grace and I am just an instrument that you use for your purpose. I surrender my plans, my work and the results into your all powerful and gracious hands. Please help me, guide me and lead me, for without you I can do nothing good. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
