Praying with Paul: 'A Benefit to Others'

Thursday, June 23, 2022

2 Corinthians 12:11-13:4

Dear Father,

Help me to gladly spend and be spent for my brothers and sisters in Christ. Help me not to burden them nor to seek what is theirs, but rather to carry their burdens and to give them what is mine. Help me to do everything for their upbuilding.

Remove all quarreling, jealousy, anger, selfishness, slander, gossip, conceit and disorder from your people, that there be no cause for mourning in your church.

Help us all to seek truth and to act upon verified facts. When acting in your behalf, may we deal with things in power, Christ acting within us.

We ask this in the name of Jesus, the one who was crucified in weakness but who now lives by your power. Amen.
