Praying for Boldness to Preach Vs. Praying Merely to Save Our Skin


Acts 4:29–30, Grant to your servants. The disciples didn’t pray for deliverance from their enemies; rather, they prayed for boldness to preach the gospel with signs and miracles following. There is a major difference between the two prayers. YHVH answered this prayer. What can we learn from this example? When we are faced with a life-threatening situation, may we, by YHVH’s grace and empowerment, be willing to lay our lives down by coming out with a strong gospel message to our adversaries.
