Praying with Paul: 'Submission'

Tuesday, November 8, 2022

Ephesians 5:21-6:9

Dear Father,

Help all of us who reverence Christ to be submissive to each other, even as he submitted himself to the people about him so that he could be their servant-king.

Help wives and husbands submit to each other. Help wives to be respectful. Help husbands to be loving and considerate.

Help parents and children submit to each other. Help children to obey their parents. Help parents to act in the best interest of their children, not provoking them.

Help employers and employees submit to each other. Help employees render the work for which they are paid. Help employers to be fair, to show kindness.

Help all your people everywhere to live even as Jesus did.

In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
