Praying with Paul: 'Setbacks into Stepping Stones'

Philippians 1:12-20

Dear Father,

Take the setbacks of our lives and use them to further the proclamation of your Good News about Jesus to the world.

Let such things become a source of encouragement to our brethren when they see the valor of those who bear up under adversity. May every hardship spur your people on to boldly speak your word without fear!

Even when your word is proclaimed for the wrong reason, we rejoice, for your word of salvation is nevertheless proclaimed.

Father, we rejoice in the way you comfort and remain faithful to us.

We are thankful that the prayers of our fellow believers rise night and day for us and for the good of your kingdom.

In the name of King Jesus I ask. Amen.
