I sometimes struggle through prayer. I fear that my prayers will eventually sound too routine, but for the most part, I sometimes just don't know what to say, especially if it's a matter that I've earnestly been praying for quite some time. Words are at loss. However, the more I read my Bible, this precious King James Bible, the more I delight myself in God's word.
Hence, reading Acts, I was struck with the word "boldness." How often do we read that the apostles went out with boldnees (haha, I bolded boldness) preaching God's Word. I fear that this is where I lack wisdom. Especially if I know that this person belongs to a certain faith, ie. JW, I get fearful and discouraged. I mean, should that not encourage me to tell them of the truth???? I lack boldness. I am ashamed.
However, I am so glad and thankful that the Lord has convicted me of such, and given me the perfect prayer!
~That will all boldness I may speak thy Word.
Also, the following verse will be a constant reminder that I must not be ashamed:
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. ~ Mark 8:38
