Praying with Paul: 'Avoiding Error'

Saturday, July 17, 2021

1 Thessalonians 2:1-4

Dear Father,

I pray that every ministry being done in your name in our time will be done in unselfish love for you and for people. Please defeat those that serve to bring honor to themselves instead of you.

May people leading these ministries avoid everything that springs from error or uncleanness. Let there be no deceit in any appeal. Let those whom you have entrusted with the gospel live and speak not to please others but to please you.

In the holy name of Jesus. Amen.
