Praying for Philippi

Paul is praying for the Philippian church, both leadership and laity.

  • Whose memory prompts your thankfulness?
  • What memory prompts your thankfulness for our church?

Prayer with Joy

Because of their partnership in the Gospel
  • Evangelism
  • Hospitality
  • Support
  • Prayer

Because God finishes what He starts
  • He will finish the work of grace in your life, promoting our security.
  • He will finish the work of grace in another’s life, promoting our perseverance in prayer and evangelism.

Because of Paul’s affection for them
  • They stuck by him in prison.
  • They stayed by him in his proclamation.

Pray for Love
  • He wants love to abound with knowledge and discernment.
  • Purpose for this prayer:  that they choose what is best.
  • Result of this prayer:  being ready for the day of Christ and bearing fruit for the glory of God.
