Oh Lord, I pray that we will learn from scripture and follow the examples of people we read about. Of course, following Your perfect example for us, Jesus, is the most important of all, but others also that You were leading is also great. I see what Paul did when You called him to be your witness in all the world as a great example for us in the faith. I love how he responded so favorably to Your calling for his life and simply ran with it. It would be awesome to see others in the faith with the same ambition that Paul had as an evangelist. Also, when he was advised to be baptized for the remission of sins, he jumped at it. This shows great faith and a willingness to do whatever he was called to do. I just pray that we will also receive You as Lord of our lives and also be baptized if we haven’t been already. So many people, even pastors, now downplay the importance of baptism and make it not important anymore. Lord, I have had way too many conversations with people who are convinced that nobody needs to be baptized any longer, and when we do it is simply taking a bath and nothing more. To these people, I ask, Lord, that You will open their eyes to verses all throughout the New Testament, like in Mark 16:15-16, Acts 2:37-40, Acts 22:14-16, Romans 6:3-6, Galatians 3:24-27, and many others. You told us to also to believe and be baptized, and we shall be saved. No wonder why baptism was emphasized all throughout the rest of the books of the New Testament after You ascended up into heaven. Surely, Your disciples continued Your work on earth, as we should be continuing today. This I pray, Lord, will happen. Continue Your work as it is in heaven. I love You, God. Amen.
