Praying with Paul: 'No Room for Boasting'

Tuesday, March 15, 2022

1 Corinthians 1:26-31

Dear Father, you of whom we boast,

Why have you chosen the weak, the foolish, the despised? You have done this so that no human being can boast. And we do not! We cast our lives at your feet. You alone are worthy!

You are the source of our lives in Christ Jesus, whom you made to be everything to us. He is our wisdom and our righteousness. He is our sanctification and our redemption.

Therefore, as it is written, "Let him who boasts, boast of the Lord" - and we do!

In the name of Jesus, by his wisdom and authority, I ask these things. Amen.
