Praying with Paul: 'A God of Deliverance'

2 Corinthians 1:3-11

Dear Father, great and gentle one,

When I am utterly, unbearably crushed so that I despair of life itself, when I feel as if I have received the sentence of death, remind me that I am to rely not on myself but on you, the God who raises the dead.

It is only you who can deliver from deadly peril. I have set my hope on you. You deliver me again and again and again. How faithful you are!

I pray for my many brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the world, that they will experience relief from suffering, deliverance from peril, and comfort after grief and despair.

Grant bountiful blessings to your people, my God, in answer to many prayers. Please receive this one and make it count among the many others! Thank you, Father. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Spirit.

Jesus has taught to besiege you with constant prayer. Here we are again, coming in his name. Amen.
