“Now I, Paul, make a personal appeal to you by the gentleness and graciousness of Christ-I who am humble among you in person, but bold toward you when absent.”
Heavenly Father, I pray that like Paul I may be meek and gentle in my Christian witness while being ready and willing to lovingly challenge false teachers; fearlessly expose false doctrines; earnestly contend for the faith; preach the word in season and out of season and be ready to give an answer for the hope I have in Christ. Thank You for the message and ministry of Paul and I pray for wisdom and discernment, so that I may not be tossed about by any wind of doctrine but able to stand fast on the word of truth - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Source: Verse of the
day for 2 Corinthians 10:1
Lord Jesus it says in Your Word, examine Yourself to see it you are in the faith – Lord I realise that this is not talking to unbelievers but to all of us who are Your children, in Christ Jesus. Lord help me to examine myself, and all that I am, and all that I am learning from You and Your word, so that I truly may say with conviction :-I know in Whom I have believed and am walking in the path on which He has placed me.
Keep me also from critical thoughts of others, and prevent me Lord, from having a spirit of control – or by pretending to hold others accountable to You when the beam in my own eye is greater than the speck that is in my brothers’ eyes.
Keep me humble before Your throng of grace and may I walk the way of the cross day be day - with the Spirit as my teacher and the Word of God washing me clean. Thank You for all my Christian friends and brothers and keep us all walking close to You in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name I pray,
