Everyday I in my devotions, I love to start out with this song Infiltrate (Unashamed Prayer) by Worth Dying For. I love the passion and the desire for pursuing God, and all that He has called us to on this earth – to experience His glory and then spread it to the ends of the earth. You can click play on the player above to listen to the song, and then here are the words to it. It has been adapted from a paper left by a young African missionary before he was martyred.
“I’m a part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit Power. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I’m a disciple of His. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.
My past redeemed. My present makes sense. My future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed vision, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need preeminence, position, promotion, applause, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, I am uplifted by prayer, and labor in power.
My face is set. My gait is fast. My goal is heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide reliable, my mission is clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of my adversaries, negotiate at the table of my enemy, or ponder at the pool of popularity.
I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, preached up – for the cause of Christ.
I am a disciple of Jesus.”
