Praying with Paul: 'Giving No Offense'

Wednesday, April 17, 2024

1 Corinthians 10:23-11:1

Dear Father,

Keep me from giving offense to people of any race, any class, any tradition, not seeking my own advantage, but let me please everybody - for their good - that they may be saved.

Let me imitate your great apostles, but most of all let me imitate Jesus, who came to glorify your name, to serve instead of be served, and to seek and save those who were lost.

In the name of Jesus and in reliance upon his example I ask this. Amen.
