Praying the Bible ~ Philemon 7

Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.

Text: Philemon 7
For I have great joy and encouragement from your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, brother.  (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, help me to be a greater encouragement to others. As Paul wrote of Philemon, may that be said of me. Increase my love for you and others. When my life has drawn to a close and people reflect back, may they not see my accomplishments. Rather, may they rejoice because through me they saw Jesus and were built up and refreshed in him. Amen.
