Prayer for LA mission team

Lord, You say (in II Timothy 1) that You did not give them a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but You have given them a spirit of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. They will not blush or be ashamed then, to testify to and for You, Lord, but instead, they'll take their share of the suffering, and do it in the power of God. For You delivered and saved each of them and called them with a calling in itself holy and leading to holiness; You did it not because of anything of merit that they have done, but because of and to further Your own purpose and grace (unmerited favor) which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.

Thank You, Abba, for this beautiful promise from Scripture that is just as vital today as it was in the day of Paul and Timothy.
