1 Corinthians 12:12-30

Dear Father, God of order,

You have invested the inferior parts of the body with greater honor. You have given the weak parts of the body indispensable roles. You have given some who are unpresentable a greater modesty.

Your ordering of people in the body of Christ is altogether wonderful. You have called all of us to be humble, loving, caring. You want us to prefer one another in honor and to count others better than ourselves. Help me to be this way in relating to other people.

Thank you for making me a member of Christ's body, thus guaranteeing that I will live forever in him.

O heavenly Father, let his life - his goodness and everlasting love - be lived fully in my life. Fill me with his presence and Spirit.

In the name of Jesus, the head of the body, I ask. Amen.
