COVID19 Call to Prayer – May 4: Heavenly Riches

Prayers from Philippians

Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles. …
And my God will meet all your needs
according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.
~ Phil. 4:14,19

Paul says he doesn’t need anything, but he is grateful for the ministry and sharing he receives from others. This is what real Christianity is – we share in one another’s troubles, and we know that God will meet all our needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. Right now, people are talking about how much the government can afford to help people, schools, and businesses. People are looking for a slice of the pie – which is limited. But with God there is no limit – because He gives to His people according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. Join me in praying that we would understand more of what those riches are.

A Prayer of Repentance:
Holy Lord,
I have sinned times without number, and been guilty of pride and unbelief,
of failure to find Your mind in Your Word,
of neglect to seek You in my daily life.
My transgressions and shortcomings present me with a list of accusations,
But I bless you that they will not stand against me,
For all have been laid on Christ.
(from the Valley of Vision)

A Prayer of Thanksgiving:
Lord Jesus – You paid it all. We owe all to You.
Out of Your glorious riches, You have not only forgiven our sins,
but will graciously give us all things.
Help us to see Your glory, that we might know how rich we are! Amen.

    This Bible verse is a little under preached on here in Australia. “Yet we urge you, brothers and sisters, to do so more and more, and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.”
    1 Thessalonians 4:10-12.
