Praying with Paul: 'Spiritual Discernment'

Sunday, March 20, 2022

1 Corinthians 2:14-16

Dear Father, who gives us the mind of Christ,

The natural person cannot understand us or you, or what you are doing in us, for these things are spiritually discerned, and he cannot receive your gifts.

Natural people cannot judge us, but you enable us to judge everything. "For who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?" But we understand, for you have given us the very mind of Christ!

How wonderful it is! How great and merciful you are to give us this precious gift! I love you, Lord.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

In the name of Jesus I give you thanks for the supernatural wisdom you have bestowed on us by reason of our faith. Amen.
