Praying with Paul: 'Slave to All'

1 Corinthians 9:19-23

Dear Father, lover of all peoples,

Though I am free from all men, let me become a slave to all, that I may win many, many more people to the cause of the Lord.

To Jews help me become as a Jew, to non-Jews as a non-Jew, to the poor as one who is poor, to the weak as one who is weak, that I might by all means save some of them.

Help me to gladly do whatever is needful for the sake of the Good News, so that I may share in its blessings.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.
