Praying with Paul: 'Disciplined for Service'

Tuesday, August 23, 2022

2 Timothy 2:1-7

Dear Father,

Make me strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. Help me pass your word on to others who also will share it.

Help me take my share of suffering as a good soldier of Christ. Help me avoid "civilian" entanglements that would dilute my loyal obedience to Christ, my commander.

Help me be a disciplined athlete for you. Help me to be a hard-working farmer who tills in your vineyard, patiently waiting for the harvest that comes from you.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
