One of the reasons I love reading history models of courage from the past encourage me. Today, I am amazed at the courage of Moses as he stood before the LORD on Mt. Sinai at the giving of the 10 Commandments and I am amazed at the courage of the Apostles Peter and John as they stood before the Sanhedrin and spoke about Jesus' resurrection: "We cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard." Courageous eyewitnesses to the Empty Tomb!
I am also taught by their prayer. They did not ask that their enemies were defeated, but that the Spirit would "enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness."
"Sovereign Lord, you made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them." The change of events that we have experienced in the last month are "what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. Now, Lord, consider" the dangers that we face to our physical health, our emotional health during this isolation, and the financial hardships we may face, "and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal" individuals, our nation, and our world "through the name of your holy servant Jesus." Amen.
