Lord, equip my church to go out and serve the community, gathering more people so that they may know You.  Send me where You will—to people who don’t know You.  Grant me the wisdom to speak the correct words in defence of Your Gospel.  May You open their hearts so that the numbers of those belonging to Satan decrease.  If I should come across a demon possessed soul, grant me the strength to cast it out in the name and power of Christ, for He is greater than they.  Even when we are persecuted, may our imprisonment and oppression still speak Your message to the few willing to listen.  If it be Your will, deliver us from persecution when we fall victim to the unbelievers.  If Your will is for us to die for Your sake, may our lives and deaths speak Your Gospel.

Amen.
