And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20 ESV)
И приблизившись Иисус сказал им: дана Мне всякая власть на небе и на земле. Итак идите, научите все народы, крестя их во имя Отца и Сына и Святаго Духа, уча их соблюдать всё, что Я повелел вам; и се, Я с вами во все дни до скончания века. Аминь. (Матфея 28:18-20 Russian)
Almighty God our dear Heavenly Father ~ we lift up our hearts and offer our hands to you as we consider the authority you have bestowed upon your beloved Son who became our redeemer and friend by suffering and dying in our place. Grant wisdom to every person who teaches the gospel so that we will use all the physical and mental ability you have given so that the message of forgiveness of sins will be known and listeners will obey Christ’s teaching to believe, repent and be baptized according to the Scriptures. Give all Christians the strength and fortitude to remain faithful to our dear Lord until death. We fervently pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
