SPEAK ONLY OF GOD
FATHER, if You give me an occasion to speak of spiritual things to my loved ones who are not yet part of Your kingdom, prompt me to speak only of You. They do not need to know how they can be saved from hell or how to be moral and made pure; instead, they need to know who it is that owns them (ref#7, May 5th). “The great sterling test in preaching is that it brings everyone to judgment” Oswald Chambers (ref#7, May 5th).
“Every element of self-reliance must be slain by the power of God. Complete weakness and dependence will always be the occasion for the Spirit of God to manifest His power” Oswald Chambers (ref#7, May 5th).
Quicken me, FATHER, to convince my loved ones that they are unholy just as I am unholy. And then I may pray that their realization of being unholy will awaken an intense craving. You came to save them because You created all of us to be holy (ref#7, May 5th). You alone can put them back into perfect union with Yourself “…not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction…” (1 Thes 1:5 ESV).
FATHER, be with my mouth and teach me what You wish to speak to my loved ones (Ex 4:12). “And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent” (John 17:3 ESV).
