Paul, praying for the believers said,
“And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:9-11
Prayer to action this in my life:
Father God, I ask right now that You would help me to grow in having my heart filled with overflowing love for You. Keep me growing in my understanding of that love and how your Truth can help me avoid error in my own life.
Father, help me to discern what is best and give me strength to follow that course. Help me to keep my heart pure in thought and attitude and to live my life in such a way that I cast no shadow on Your name. May my life reflect the love of Jesus, may I share His joy and bring His peace into areas of conflict. May I be patient with those who I find abrasive and be gentle in return. May I reflect Your goodness to others and share my faith in You. Let my life be marked by a humility that shows my confidence is in You and not in my own wisdom. Let my life proclaim who my God is!! In the strong name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
