Praying with Paul: 'Taking Hold of Eternal Life'

Tuesday, August 17, 2021

1 Timothy 6:12-15

Dear Father, Lord of all lords,

Enable me to take hold of the eternal life to which I was called when I made the good confession before many witnesses. Help me keep your commands until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which you will bring about in your own time.

O God, the blessed and only ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see - to you be honor and might forever and ever. Amen.

In the name of Jesus and to your glory I lift up this prayer. Amen.
