Scriptural references for:
Open wide the gates
Et sic de similibus references:
Oh Father, instill in me the spirit of boldness:
to go into all the world to proclaim the words of Your Son, Jesus Christ;
to publish the words of inspiration that You have given unto me;
and to testify of the visions and revelations shown to me by Your Holy Ghost.
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Oh Father, open wide the gates and doors of opportunity to bring Your message of hope:
to Your saints who may be discouraged,
to Your children who may be spiritually famished
and to Your people who may be without a shepherd to guide them.
18 The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
let the light of Your love abound anew,
let the flame of Your joy be rekindled afresh,
let the Heavenly river Your peace be restored on earth among men of good will.
11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
Oh Father, to Thee I make this earnest prayer in the Name of Your Son Jesus.
23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
