Praying with Paul: 'God's Treasure Revealed'

Saturday, May 28, 2022

2 Corinthians 4:7-12

Dear Father, powerful sustainer,

Thank you for putting your treasure in a cracked clay pot like me so that it will be evident that the treasure is from you, the transcendent and powerful God, and not from me, the container.

Thank you for upholding all who serve you. When I am afflicted in every way, I am not crushed; when perplexed, I am not driven to despair; when persecuted, I am not forsaken; when struck down, I am not destroyed.

Reveal your immortality through my mortal body. May unbelievers see the glorious work you are doing in my life.

I come as your humble servant, in the name of your only Son. Amen.
