Praying with Paul: 'Faith and Freedom'

Friday, August 12, 2022

1 Timothy 4:1-4; 5:24

Dear Father,

Keep us from paying attention to seducing spirits or doctrines of demons. Don't let the pretensions of those whose consciences are seared invade our lives.

Let us hold that marriage is honorable and not to be forbidden. Let us be free to eat all the foods which you have created as good.

Give us thankful hearts for what you have provided, and may we consecrate what we eat by giving thanks.

Keep from joining into the sins of others, whether those that are present and conspicuous or those that are hidden and will appear later.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
