Praying with Paul: 'Unselfish Servants'

Sunday, June 18, 2023

2 Corinthians 11:16-21

Dear Father, to whom our pure devotion is due,

When someone seeks to make slaves of us, to prey upon us, to take advantage of us, to put on airs, or to strike us in the face, help us know that such a person does not represent you. For your emissaries don't do such things.

Help us look to the examples of Paul, Peter, John, Barnabas, and others like them, who submitted themselves as servants. Help us be like them.

In the name of Jesus, our greatest example, I pray. Amen.
