Praying with Paul: 'The Wisdom of Respect'

Thursday, September 7, 2023

Titus 3:1-3

Dear Father,

Help me to have respect for rulers and authorities, to be submissive and obedient.

Help me to be ready for any honest work, and to speak evil of no one.

Help me to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy to every one.

Help me not to be foolish, disobedient, or led astray. Help me not to be a slave to various passions and pleasures, or to pass my days in malice or envy, hating others or being hated by them.

In the name of Jesus, the all-wise and blessed Savior. Amen.
