Useful To You And Me
No matter what our situations in life are, there are many lessons that each one of us can learn from this little letter to Philemon. What a joy to know that no-one is excluded from the good news of the gospel of grace - for anyone can be saved through faith in Christ. And yet, it is also important to be aware that although sin can be forgiven, there are always consequences for our wrongdoings and our responsibilities must always be addressed.
What an encouragement it is to know God works all things together for the good - even the bad things that take place in our lives. And how vital to face up to our own responsibilities and to let all things be done in love - for this honors our Father in heaven.
"Formerly he was useless to you, but now he has become useful both to you and to me"
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, as we 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. 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 us to act responsibly in the work you have given us to do, and we pray that we may show godly grace and Christ-like love to all we come in contact with daily, knowing you work all things together for good. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
2 Corinthians 2:17
"Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God."
