Over the last three days, the senior staff of AFES have been gathering together for our annual conference (online this year). Every day, Peter Adam has lead us through this prayer from 2 Timothy – a prayer to echo through my lifetime. Here’s part A:
Dear Heavenly Father, please help me to fan into flames the gift that you have given me. Help me to share in suffering for the gospel and not be ashamed of it. May I guard sound teaching with the help of the Holy Spirit. Help me to be strong to train up faithful people, who will also teach others. May I remember Christ Jesus, risen from the dead, descended from David. Help me to die and endure with him, to live and reign with him. Please, may I not disown him or be faithless.
