Praying with Paul: 'My Joy and Crown'

Monday, November 28, 2022

Philippians 4:1

Dear Father,

Help me to stand firm in the Lord, not only for my own sake but because I am someone's joy and crown, the object of their love and longing.

May I reach out to others to call them to follow the example Christ. Let them become my joy and crown, the objects of my love and longing.

Especially, Father, let me influence my family - spouse, children, in-laws, grandchildren - to walk in your way and to long for your day.

I love them dearly and long for their salvation. Draw them to your heart of love.

In the name of Jesus I ask these things. Amen.
