2 Corinthians 10:15-18

Dear Father,

Let me have pride in what I do, not in claiming someone else's work. Grant me to be active for you in new endeavors or new places, not boasting of work done in another person's field.

Father, increase my faith, so that the sphere of the influence of your Good News may be greatly enlarged through me and passed on even to other lands. Let me boast, not of what I do, but of what you do through me. "Let him who boasts boast of the Lord."

What I really want, Father, is not to commend myself, just talking a good story, but to have your approval, your acceptance, your commendation.

In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
