Praying with Paul: 'Anticipation of Victory'

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

1 Corinthians 15:47-50

Dear Father, keeper of every promise,

Thank you for making the first man, Adam, a living soul. Thank you even more that by your power the last man, Jesus Christ, has become for us a life-giving spirit.

May I anticipate with hope the fact that, just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.

Give me patience as I reside in a body of flesh and blood, knowing that flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom of heaven, nor the perishable the imperishable, but the physical has to precede the spiritual.

In the name of Jesus I lift my voice to you on high. Amen.
