Prayer for 2 Corinthians 2

Choose Verse

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your word. Help me to learn all the lessons that I can, from the corrective instructions, that Paul gave to the various churches. Keep me from developing a ‘holier-than-thou’ attitude and help me to recognise my faults.. and take steps to correct my actions and attitudes, when I am straying away from Your instruction. Keep me low at the cross and broken before You, and use me to help my brothers and sisters, if they should go astray – and use them to correct my faults, should I stray from the path of righteousness – this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all.”
(2 Corinthians 2:3)

Heavenly Father, thank You for the wisdom, grace and sensitivity that Paul demonstrated in his corrective ministry to the Corinthian believers. Help me to be willing to address any issue that is causing a brother in Christ to stray from the path of righteousness, but keep my heart sensitive and soft, so that I may speak the truth in love. Help me also to be willing to receive, and act on a word of correction, from a fellow brother or sister in Christ, without automatically misunderstanding their motive – this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN

“For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.”

Heavenly Father, thank You that no matter what we may have to face in life..that in Christ we are always lead to victory. I pray that as we rest in Him, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving.. that we may always be lead in triumph to Your praise and glory. May my life be a living sacrifice - a burnt offering that becomes as sweet-smelling perfume - of the knowledge of Him, in every place You may choose to send me - I pray this in Jesus name and for His glory, AMEN

“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”

Heavenly Father, thank You that I am Your child, and that I am being changed from glory to glory by the power of the Spirit. I pray that You would use me to witness of Your goodness and grace, to both the saved and to those that are lost. Shine the light of the glorious gospel into the hearts of those that are dead in their sins - so that they may come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ my Lord, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
