More courage

For this very night there stood before me an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I worship, and he said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar. And behold, God has granted you all those who sail with you.’ So take heart, men, for I have faith in God that it will be exactly as I have been told. (Acts 26:23-25 ESV)

Ибо Ангел Бога, Которому принадлежу я и Которому служу, явился мне в эту ночь и сказал: ‘не бойся, Павел! тебе должно предстать пред кесаря, и вот, Бог даровал тебе всех плывущих с тобою’. Посему ободритесь, мужи, ибо я верю Богу, что будет так, как мне сказано. (Деяния 27:23-25 Russian)

O LORD God, my dear heavenly Father ~ thank you, Lord, for this new day that shines brightly with evidence of fresh blessings to all people in the world. Fill our hearts with strong faith like your servant Paul demonstrated in many dangerous circumstances. Give all Christians in every nation more courage to boldly tell others why we have chosen to trust and obey Christ as our Savior and Friend. Lead us by the truth contained in the Spirit-inspired Scriptures. Bless the good people in the nation of Uzbekistan with open hearts to your message of salvation. Give the rulers of Uzbeks the wisdom to encourage the reading of the Bible. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
