Prayer for Philemon 1:11

“Once he was useless to you, but now he is useful to both you and me.”

Praying through Philemon 1:11

Heavenly Father, as I read through the little letter from Paul to Philemon, how good it is to see the many lessons I can learn from this unfortunate incident, where a runaway slave returned to his master as a born again brother in Christ. Thank You that the things in a life that were once useless to You can be used for Your praise and glory, when that life is given over to Jesus. Help me to act responsibly in the work you have given me to do, and I pray that I may show godly grace and Christ-like love to my brothers and sisters in Christ, knowing you work all things together for good. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
