MIGHTY God, our Father, we are thankfully glad that You have raised up for us prophets and seers (pastors, teachers, missionaries, lay ministers and all that work so diligently to spread the gospel) in this day and generation.
Help us that they may not become martyrs through our indifference, intolerance, or hostility.
Open our eyes, give us understanding, we pray, that the light of truth may do its great work in these vital days in which we are living.
Help us to know and recognize Your prophets by the fruits of their lives, and give us the courage and the steadfastness to hold up their hands. Amen.
