And the saying pleased the whole multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch, 6 whom they set before the apostles; and when they had prayed, they laid hands on them.

Lord help us to choose well our brethren, men and women filled with Holy Spirit and wisdom. We will give ourselves continually to prayer and the ministry of your Word with Bible Reading Marathons.
