Prayer for Philemon 1:9

“I appeal, instead, on the basis of love. I, Paul, as an elderly man and now also as a prisoner of Christ Jesus,”

Praying through Philemon 1:9

Heavenly Father, thank You for my brothers and sisters in Christ and for mutual joy and encouragement we are able to give to one another. I pray that I may foster a Christlike spirit in my dealings with others, especially those that are of the household of faith. When I have been wronged, give me the grace and wisdom to do what is right and when I have wronged others, give me the courage to face up to my fault and failings. Give me the wisdom and confidence to always stand for that which is right and whether in a position of authority or when serving other, I pray that I may honour Your name by my words and actions. Thank You for the short book of Philemon and may I learn the many lessons it has to teach me  - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
