Great God of Heaven and Earth,
Make me not afraid to be your child. I am surrounded by the things of this world, and my heart leaps with sinful desire when the lures of this world try to steal my heart away from you. Keep me on your path, the path that walks in faithfulness and glorifies you. Help me to see each day of life as an opportunity to live as your child, faithfully proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. May I not be unafraid of the Gospel or too timid to cry out to the world that I am a precious child of God and will not be moved because of the rock that I stand upon, the Word of God.
