What’s on my mind for November 20, 2018

Psalm 18:1

“I love You, O Lord, my strength.”
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

Tomorrow afternoon I will be having a cervical injection for pain. Please pray for me. Also, because of the procedure, if you leave a comment on a post scheduled to be published tomorrow I will most likely approve and reply late. Lord bless you all, my dear brothers and sisters!

A word in season – Paul, to the Philippians

The prayers of the New Testament are glorious. Over the years I’ve heard Bible teachers suggest that we pray them for one another. Occasionally I have, but more often my prayers are heartfelt but vague. Let’s determine to take this wise counsel!

Philippians 1:3-11


I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; just as it is right for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart, inasmuch as both in my chains and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers with me of grace. For God is my witness, how greatly I long for you all with the affection of Jesus Christ.

And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, 10 that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, 11 being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
