Praying with Paul: 'A Brilliant Star'

Philippians 2:14-18

Dear Father,

Help me do what is needed without complaining or arguing, so that I may be blameless and pure.

Let me be your child without fault, a child of God, in a crooked and perverse generation.

Let me shine like a brilliant star in the night skies of your universe, as I hold out the word of life.

Make me a source of pride to those who led me to the Lord, so that they may know that their efforts were not in vain.

Let me rejoice together with all your saints and let them rejoice with me! Now and for ever!

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