Praying with Paul: 'The Central Mystery'

Thursday, August 11, 2022

1 Timothy 3:14-16

Dear Father,

Give us a graciousness by which we shall know how to behave ourselves in your household, the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. Help us so dedicate ourselves individually to the truth that the church at large will be a bastion of truth, and will be known by the world to be what it claims to be.

Keep our focus of truth always on that central mystery of our religion: That Christ was manifested in the flesh, vindicated in the Spirit, preached among the nations, believed on in the world, and taken up in glory!

Nourish us on words of faith and good doctrine. Guide our minds to stay away from silly and godless myths.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
