Gracious Lord, so often we doubt your power. Though we know your mighty works of salvation we are slow to trust you. Help us to recount the ways that you have reshaped us through your Spirit, whether monumental or gradual. Remind us through your word of the great gospel declarations: “It is finished;” “He has risen;” “No condemnation;” “More than conquerors.” The triumph of the gospel did not come through our own might but by your wisdom and strength. Help me to see this, and the students at JCU. So help us to generously speak of the gospel to those around us, not judging their receptiveness. Keep in our minds the truth that, by your word, you bring the dead to life. May we trust and rejoice in your power to save.
