Prayer for 1 Corinthians 9:25

“Now everyone who competes exercises self-control in everything. However, they do it to receive a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one.”

Heavenly Father, what an amazing testimony we see in the life of Paul, who demonstrated a disciplined life, that was spent preaching the glorious gospel of grace to Jew and Gentile alike. Thank You that all who live godly in Christ Jesus and exercise self-control in our Christian life are promised an imperishable crown, that will never fade away. Help me to press on for the upward call of God in Christ Jesus my Lord and help me to live and work for Your praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
