Prayers From Philippians

Phil. 4:14-19        Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles.  15………..19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

Paul says he doesn’t need anything but he is grateful for the ministry and sharing he gets from others.   This is what real Christianity is – we share in one another’s troubles and we know that God will meet all our needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.  Right now people are talking about how much the government can afford to help people, schools, and businesses.  People are looking for a slice of the pie  – which is limited.  But with God there is no limit – because he gives to his people according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.  Join me in praying that we would understand more of what those riches are.

A Prayer of Repentance:  Holy Lord,

I have sinned times without number, and been guilty of pride and unbelief,

of failure to find your mind in   your Word,

of neglect to seek you in my daily life.

My transgressions and short comings present me with a list of accusations,

But I bless you that they will  not stand against me,

For all have been laid on Christ;  (From the Valley of Vision).  

A Prayer of Thanksgiving: Lord Jesus – you paid it all.  We owe all to you.  Out of your glorious riches you have not only forgiven our sins, but will graciously give us all things.   Help us to see your glory that we might know how rich we are!  Amen.
