Praying with Paul: 'God's Simple Message'

Wednesday, March 16, 2022

1 Corinthians 2:1-5

Dear Father, God of all true wisdom, power, and glory,

When I set about to share your Good News about Jesus with other people, keep me from using lofty concepts or high-sounding words. Let me speak of nothing except Christ and him crucified.

Help me to understand that it is okay for me to show my own weakness, fear, and trembling. Let my words demonstrate your Spirit and power, so that the faith which germinates will rest not in my wisdom but in yours.

In the name of Jesus, by his authority, and according to his will I lift up this petition to you. Amen.
