Praying with Paul: 'Speaking Truth'

Monday, April 29, 2024

1 Corinthians 14:13-25

Dear Father, God of intelligibility and peace,

Let our praying, singing, and preaching be aimed at informing the minds and spirits of others, that they may be built up and respond, "Amen."

Give us the attitude of Paul, who said, "I would rather speak five words with my mind, in order to instruct others, than ten thousand words in a tongue."

Let us be babies when it comes to evil, but not in our thinking. In our thinking, may we be mature, and may we speak your message in such a way that those who hear will be called to account, will have the secrets of the heart disclosed, will fall on their faces to worship you, and will declare that you are really among us.

Submitting to your commands of peace and order, I ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
