O most holy God, encourage us to go into all the world and preach the gospel message to everyone who needs it. Just like how we received it freely, we ought to share it freely as well. Give us the compassion for lost souls, courage to explain to them the gospel, and boldness to withstand ridicule and persecution. As we do Your mission, we will hold on to Christ’s promise of His everlasting presence. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
