Lord, give us the words and wisdom necessary to speak in defence of You. We used to be hostile to You; let others see how You change hardened hearts. May our testimonies of Your presence in our lives be a worthy defence, that others may see the change You bring to our darkness. We confess the prophecies of the prophets—Jesus as the propitiation for our sins and thereby the salvation He brings. Our own lives are a defence of this Gospel. By this, may others become as we are—saved and justified in the blood of Christ. Our defence testifies of the truth set in Christ, for He is Truth. Let this truth be known through our example.
