Praying with Paul: 'The Ultimate Loyalty'

Philippians 2:19-3:7

Dear Father,

Help me to be a Timothy, one who genuinely cares for the welfare of others.

Help me look out not just for my own interests, but for Christ's.

Help me to be an Epaphroditus, a true fellow worker and fellow soldier to all others who serve you, risking my life for you.

Help me to be one of the true circumcision, who worship you in spirit, who glory in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh.

Help me turn my back on all earthly gain and count all things as loss for the surpassing worth of knowing Christ and serving him.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
