“In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with
strength in my soul.  All the kings of
the earth shall praise You, O Lord, when they hear the words of Your
mouth.”  (Psalm 138:3-4)

Jesus told us not to be anxious
as to what we should say, for in the time of need the Holy Spirit will bring to
our mind the things to say.  If you are
walking with the Lord, He will guide you in all of your ways and teach you the
things He knows you need to know. 
Continue to be strengthened knowing that the Lord, who is worthy of all
praise, knows what you need even before you ask.

Lord, You have always been there and all that I need has been provided
for.  Guide me, O Lord, in the way of
truth that I would now and always abide in the truths You have revealed.  Help me to understand so that when the day
comes I may give an answer of the hope that is within me.  Lead me now and always according to Your will
to look to You and praise You for all of Your goodness.

Lord Jesus, You have come that as
many as follow You would know the way of everlasting life.  Lead me this day to abide with You and to
listen as Your Spirit speaks.  Keep me
ever close in the truth that has been revealed for all people.  Let me speak Your words of truth that others
may hear You, even though it is from my mouth.  Grant that I would be bold in faith.  Amen.
