Father, we give thanks for those who paved the way us in our journey of faith. We honor their faith, courage, sacrifice, patience and hard work to share your love, your Word, the Gospel with us. When facing rejection and opposition, they didn’t give up, but instead rejoiced because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name. And day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ. Lord, enable us to follow their excellent example. In Jesus‘ Name. Amen.
Acts 5:41-42 New International Version 1984
