Praying with Paul: 'Fear and Trembling'

Philippians 2:12-13

Dear Father,

Help me to obey your word, not only in the presence of other followers of Christ but even more when they are absent, when there's no one there but me.

Be with me as I work out my salvation with fear and trembling, lest I should ever think that I have earned it. After all, it is you, dear God, who is at work within me, both causing me to do your good purpose and to purpose your good deeds.

In the name of Jesus, our star of hope. Amen.
