Praying with Paul: 'The Fragrance of Christ'

Monday, May 22, 2023

2 Corinthians 2:14-16

Dear Father,

Let the incense which is my life and my prayers arise as a sweet fragrance to you.

Thanks be to you, my God, that you always lead me in triumph, and through me, spread the fragrance of the knowledge of Christ everywhere. Thank you that you have appointed Christians to be the aroma of Christ to yourself among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life.

Who is sufficient for these things? Certainly not I! Your grace alone upholds me.

In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
