Praying with Paul: 'Order Out of Confusion'

Sunday, April 28, 2024

1 Corinthians 14:1-12

Dear Father, God of intelligibility and peace,

Thank you for reversing the curse of Babel when you poured out your Holy Spirit on believers in Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost.

Even in the confusion of many tongues you proclaimed your Good News to every tribe and nation under heaven, with every person hearing it in his or her own language.

Thank you too for the gift of prophecy in the common language, believers speaking to one another for their mutual encouragement and consolation, a gift greater than tongues (unless the unknown language is interpreted), because understandable speech builds up your church.

Help us to manifest your Spirit in all things. Help us to strive zealously for whatever builds up the church.

In submission to you and in Jesus' name, I ask. Amen.
