Verse number 9!!
Oh’ how I need this prayer. Every single bit. Every word. For myself. And how I need to pray this over others.
I have had a couple absolutely mind boggling things happen recently and stood clueless on how to respond. Just a couple hours ago I asked Karen (my MIL) how I should respond and she said, “Ask the Lord for wisdom, Lee. He promises to give us wisdom when we ask.”
First and Fifteen verse #9
“And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ-to the glory and praise of God.”
May my love abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight. Please help me to discern what is best through the prompting of the Holy Sirit. May I respond purely and blamelessly as a representative of Christ. I want to be filled with the fruit (the works) of righteousness that is even possible through the work of Christ, not just the knowledge, but the action, too. Thereby bringing glory and praise to you you, Father. I love you, Amen.
