Praying with Paul: 'My Perfect Weakness'

Wednesday, June 21, 2023

2 Corinthians 12:1-10

Dear Father,

Put your hand over my mouth to keep me from boasting about myself. Even if I were to have visions and revelations about you or to be caught up to Paradise and hear things too sacred to be told, let me boast only of my weaknesses.

If you limit me, inflict pain on me, cause me to struggle and cry out for relief, let me come back to trusting you.

Your grace is sufficient for me. Your power is made perfect in weakness.

In the name of him who is my strength, Jesus Christ. Amen.
