Prayer for Philemon 1:11

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

Heavenly Father, as I read through the little letter from Paul to Philemon, how good it is to see the many lessons we 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 life that were once useless to You can be used for Your praise and glory, when a life in 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. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
