Today, I share one of my favorite prayers from The Word. may it be my prayer for you too …
And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
Abound in love … in a world that is hostile and losing all sense of communicating with gentility, love. In the words of Bob Goff … Love Does!
Knowledge and discernment … show love with all knowledge, and the ability to use that knowledge.
Be pure and blameless … as a child of God, you have been delivered from the penalty and the power of sin. We still have to stay vigilant and fight the good fight, so stand strong, be on guard.
Be filled with the fruit of righteousness … may your day be productive for the your walk with the Lord and for those around you. This will make Jesus so attractive to all who cross your path.
To the glory and praise of God … it ain’t about you, it’s all about Him.
Be blessed, Todd.
Please know, it is hard to pick favorite prayers. There are so many great ones. I encourage you to reflect on the many scattered throughout Scripture. I also love to read the great prayers through history. But that’s for another day.
