Praying with Paul: 'Building Up Each Other'

Thursday, May 20, 2021

2 Corinthians 1:23-2:11

Dear Father, giver of great joy,

I hope that in my effort to get others to live for you that I will never lord it over their faith.

Help me work with them for their joy. Let them stand firm in freedom in their faith.

Help my contacts with them not cause pain, but let my joy be their joy, and let their joy be my joy! Help us to work together in a common goal in the Lord. Help us work for each other's upbuilding in holiness.

In the name of Jesus and in full confidence of salvation through him I ask all these things. Amen.
