“LORD, Grant Us Backbone”
Mark 13:5-11
(5) And Jesus, answering them, began to say: “Take heed that no one deceives you. (6) “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many. (7) “But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet. (8) “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (9) “But watch out for yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues. You will be brought before rulers and kings for My sake, for a testimony to them. (10) “And the gospel must first be preached to all the nations. (11) “But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.” (NKJV)
