Lord, I know that I carry Your Word with me and in me. I sense its weight and presence deep in my spirit. I know I carry it, and I want to use it for Your glory. My prayer is that from this moment onward, You will give me a greater boldness and courage. Release me and empower me, Lord, to speak forth Your truth in a way that brings life, joy, and hope to someone who needs it.
I confess that I have a lot of reservations about speaking out what You have given me. I feel inadequate and inarticulate. I don’t want to embarrass myself, and I also don’t want to speak in a way that would not represent You properly. Even more, I especially don’t want to cause pain or frustration to anyone by not presenting Your truth effectively.
In spite of these reservations, I trust You—and I commit myself to You, Lord. As You direct me by Your Holy Spirit, I will deliver the Word I carry. As You present me with opportunities to give to others what You have given to me, I will take the step, open my mouth, and speak out simply and plainly in Your name.
Please glorify Your name through all that I say, dear Lord. Amen.
