Praying with Paul: 'Faith and Good Conscience'

Friday, August 5, 2022

1 Timothy 1:3-11, 18-20

Dear Father,

Keep us from believing any teaching different from that which your genuine apostles taught about our Lord Jesus Christ. Let what they aimed for arise in our hearts: love that issues from a pure heart, a good conscience, and sincere faith.

Don't let us take a legalistic approach to our life under you. By the law we can see what not to do, by Jesus we see a real direction for our lives. Let us live by him and for him.

Help us wage a good warfare, holding faith and a good conscience.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
