Praying with Paul: 'Holy People, Holy Pride'

Monday, June 3, 2024

2 Corinthians 7:2-10

Dear Father, who wills the good of all of your children,

May all your holy people open their hearts to each other. Let us wrong no one, corrupt no one, take advantage of no one.

Let us have great confidence and pride in one another. Let us comfort one another. Even in affliction, fill us with joy!

Let us be honest with each other, correcting as necessary. And if we grieve each other, let mourning be turned to joy because of a change of attitude flowing from godly grief.

Let our godly grief produce changed hearts and changed lives, bringing salvation without cause for regret.

In the name of Jesus I come, asking according to his authority. Amen.
