Please join us in today’s prayer, written by a member of ACFW’s Forty Days of Prayer team.
Clarity of speech for those pitching projects
Philippians 4: 13–I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
You are the Creator and Your imagination has no limit. We believe that You have given us the ideas and presentations for the projects we will be pitching during this conference. Our nerves will be on edge as the clock ticks down our short chance to demonstrate the worth of the words we believe You have given us. So we pray for courage, clarity, and confidence. Courage to stand boldly, remembering our worth is not of ourselves but from You; clarity to recall the kernels of truth our work entails and to demonstrate Your beauty and grace within those kernels; and confidence that the time spent is not in vain regardless of the outcome.
For some of us, this experience will be bread upon the water. For others, it will be yet another rock on the slippery river of publication, and for some, the reeling in of long-ago promises may finally be rewarded. But wherever we fall on the spectrum of the experience, help us to remember that You are in control of our journey. For this we thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen
