Praying with Paul: 'The Proper Time for Judgment'

Monday, March 28, 2022

1 Corinthians 4:5

Dear Father, who drives away all the darkness,

Keep me from passing judgment before the proper time, before the Lord comes, for he will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of every person's heart, including mine. And so everyone will receive appropriate commendation from you.

Let me be concerned about "this day" and "that day." Let me do my best to serve you "this day" - today, that I may stand before you on "that day" - your day of reckoning!

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