At the beginning of the year, our pastor challenged our church to memorize the book of Philippians, one week at a time. That’s two verses a week, which most of the time I think I can manage, especially seeing as how many verses are so familiar.
This week I’ve been learning this:
And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11
Hard not to pray it for everyone you know when you’re up early with sick children. It’s reminding me of how little I pray for my children, and that I need to do better. It’s not a big change, but God has helped me to pray for my children more as a result of this verse.
How is God’s Word changing you?
