Exercising Self-control — 1 Corinthians 9:24

1 Corinthians 9:24

Dear Father,

Help me to compete like a runner aspiring for an Olympic gold medal. Help me to exercise discipline and self-control in all things that I may receive the imperishable victory wreath.

Help me not to run aimlessly or to box as one sparring against the air. Give me the grit to pommel my body, to bring it under subjection, lest after having shared the Good News with others I myself should be disqualified.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.
