Praying with Paul: 'Prayer and Good Deeds'

Thursday, August 8, 2024

1 Timothy 2:8-14

Dear Father,

Let the men of your church pray constantly to you, lifting holy hands without quarreling. May your women adorn themselves modestly and sensibly and clothe themselves in good deeds, as befits women who profess religion.

Actually Lord, may both sexes do both of these. Let prayer and good deeds adorn us and fill our lives.

May men and women who are called to follow you relate to each other in perfect submission both to you and to each other.

In the name of Jesus Christ, the one Mediator between God and man, who gave his life for us, I pray. Amen.
