Occasionally, we are surprised at someone’s unusual courage to speak out when the stakes are so high. Such was the case at a recent speech given by actor Chris Pratt at the MTV Music Awards. I found myself praying for Chris and thanking the Lord for his courage.
Even though Adam from our morning team shared this post way back in January, I felt it was worth drawing attention to the subject matter once again, if only to remind us to pray for each other.
Here are a few ideas as to how:
Pray for Chris and other people of faith in pop culture (think Hollywood stars and professional athletes) who are willing to speak out and proclaim the truth about a God who loves them. Pray for their boldness and courage when opposition arises knowing that the Bible promises that it will. See 2 Tim. 3:12
Pray for yourself and your friends. That we each may have the boldness to speak out, even when the stakes are high.
