Be prepared to give an answer (1 Peter 3:15-16)


But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behaviour in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.

Lord,

In my heart please help me to set apart Christ as Lord
                Yes, I know Jesus is my friend, my brother, my helper
                But He is so much more as well
                He is my Saviour, my Redeemer, my Lord

Please help me to always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks me for the reason for the hope that I have.
                Help me to remember the hope you give me
                Let my life show it obviously
                Let me speak of it clearly

Lord help me to do so with gentleness and respect
                Showing love and care for others            
                Keeping a clear conscience
                Bringing no reason for slander

Help me in all of this, please Lord

Amen
