Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- July 1

Dear Lord, forgive us for thinking that full-time discipleship is only for ministers or other professional Christian workers, for You have called each of us, Your people, to be full-time Christians, haven't You -- at home with our families, at our places of employment, while driving to work or to shop, and as we meet those who daily cross our paths? ... Do we reflect You as we wait in a check-out line, and do we stand on Your Word as we face our political concerns and responsibilities? ... Remind us that often our actions or lack of action speak louder than words, and that nations are in danger of falling when good people remain silent. ... Give us wisdom and courage to live every day as Your representatives, for we may be the only "gospel" that some people will ever encounter.

In Jesus' name we pray.
