Praying with Paul: 'Stewardship'

Sunday, March 27, 2022

1 Corinthians 4:1-4

Dear Father, judge of all mankind,

Help me be a profitable slave to you and good steward of your mysteries. As a steward may I be found trustworthy.

May I not be concerned about being judged by human beings or by any human court. May I not even set in judgment on myself. Only you do that. I am not aware of anything against myself, but that, I understand, in and of itself, does not acquit me before you. You are my judge. You can condemn. And you can and will make me stand.

It is by Jesus' authority and in his name that I offer up this prayer. Amen.
