Lord Jesus, I ask you to use me and ______________________ as you used the Twelve, that we may represent you and minister in your name wherever we are and wherever you send us. Please use us to speak a word of truth where you open to us a door for the word. May we encourage others to come to repentance before you. May we have the discernment to recognize when others are simply not willing to listen to the truth and it is time to move on. Please lead us to others whose hearts are soft toward you. I also pray that we will grow in understanding the authority you have given us over evil spirits so that you may use us to set others free from spiritual oppression. Grant us faith to seek physical healing for others through anointing them with oil. May it be in your will to heal others through our touch. When you put your finger on a sin in our lives, especially in matters of sexuality, may we be quick to repent. Free us from any spirit of defensiveness or resentment directed towards those who help us see our sin. May we never compromise the truth out of fear of what others will think of us. I pray that we will be intent not just to listen to the truth but to put it into practice. As you did for John, grant discernment to our spiritual leaders that they may know when it is time to publicly hold political leaders accountable for their disobedience to your word. May they be fearless when that time comes, even at great risk to themselves. In your name, amen.
