Praying with Paul: 'All Things Are Ours'

Saturday, March 25, 2017

1 Corinthians 3:16-20

Dear Father, who loves to dwell with man,

Thank you for dwelling within our spirits, for making us your holy temple!

Help us not to be deceived or to deceive ourselves. Let us be seen as foolish to the world, let us be fools for you, that we may be truly wise. For the wisdom of the world is pure folly in your eyes.

For it is written, \"He catches the wise in their craftiness,\" and \"The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.\" So don't ever let us boast of men, or of ourselves. Don't let us be impressed with Ph.D.'s, or millions of dollars, or glamor or fame, or titles a mile long, or recognition banquets.

Give us humility, in the blessed name of Jesus. Amen.
