Praying with Paul: 'Heeding Warnings'

Sunday, April 14, 2024

1 Corinthians 10:1-5

Dear Father, righteous judge of all mankind,

Help me take to heart the examples of disobedience and punishment set by your ancient people as they wandered through the wilderness.

Although they were baptized into Moses in the cloud and the sea, and drank of the spiritual food and spiritual water, flowing backward through time from that spiritual Rock, which was Christ himself. In spite of all this, they got lost in the wilderness because they displeased you.

O Father, let me take to heart these warnings, and not desire anything evil, as they did, nor to worship idols, as they did, or to engage in immorality, as they did. May I never put you to the test or grumble about your providence, as they did.

In the name of Jesus grant me patience to persevere until the end. Amen.
