Philippians 1.9-11 – August 24, 2020

Philippians 1:9–11

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.  (Philippians 1:9–11, NIV)

 

How do you pray for others?

Thought Questions:

Describe what you would consider a typical “intercessory” prayer you might hear during a time of worship today? How does this compare to the prayer here in Philippians 1?

What does it mean for someone to have their love abound more and more?

What would our world look like if we spent more time praying the prayer above for other people, requesting that God would fill them with everything they need to follow him better?
