Praying with Paul: 'Preparing for the End'

Friday, December 2, 2022

Philippians 4:7-11

Dear Father, victorious deliverer,

May I be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own, based on rule-keeping but that which is through trust in Christ, the righteousness of God that depends on trust, that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that if possible, I might attain the resurrection of the dead.

O God, let me obtain it! Let me be awake! Let me put on the armor of light! Let me put on the Lord Jesus and his righteousness, and be found in him! Let me trust, obey, even suffer, in order to have the victory!

In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
