    Dear Lord, although some Christians may achieve
    greatness as leaders, the growth of Christianity has
    always depended on individuals catching the vision.
    Help me to be sensitive to the opportunities available
    to me to act out Your love, Your compassion and
    concerns for others that I may reflect Your amazing
    grace. For often it is in the little things -- holding a
    door for someone, lending a helping hand, giving
    words of encouragement or appreciation that I best
    represent You. ... Help us, Oh Lord, who call
    ourselves Your followers, who believe Your message,
    to remember that we may be the first "gospel in
    action" that some have ever encountered. ... When
    the timing is right, give me the words to tell someone
    about You!
    In Your name, Jesus, I pray.
