Praying with Paul: 'Self-examination'

Sunday, June 23, 2024

2 Corinthians 13:5-14

Dear Father, God of love and peace,

Help me to examine myself, to test myself, to see whether I am holding to my faith. Help me to realize that Jesus Christ is in me - unless I should fail the test.

Help me not to do anything wrong, to do nothing against the truth. Help me stand for Christ and for what is right and true.

Let my life - my attitude and my deeds - show constant improvement. Help me mend my ways, agree with my fellow believers, and live in peace.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ rest upon me. May you, the God of love and peace, be near me. May the fellowship of your Holy Spirit surround me.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.
