Prayer for Communicators

Lord, let the Good News of your marvellous deeds fall on every ear,

and let all tongues rejoice in your wisdom, your compassion, your faithfulness, and your love.
Make me bold and let me share your Word with those you desire to reach.

As my heart overflows with your love, speak through me.
Let me proclaim your glory and your majesty, and tell of the kindness you have shown your people.

This I ask, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
