Observation

What are Paul’s fears regarding his upcoming visit to Corinth (12:20-21)? What are his hopes (13:7-10)?

Application

Does my lifestyle more closely resemble one that Paul feared to find, or one that he hoped to find?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Help me to be a person who who will be found as You want me to be. Keep me from quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, factions, slander, gossip, arrogance, and disorder. Help me to repent any time I have done anything that causes impurity. Keep me from indulging in sexual sin and debauchery. I thank You that Christ is not weak in dealing with us, but is powerful among us, for though He was crucified in weakness, yet He lives by Your power. Likewise, by Your power I live with Him to serve Your children. Help me to continually test myself to make sure I am walking with you. Continue to complete the work You began in me when I came to salvation. Help me to aim for perfection, to listen to the appeal of the teaching in Your Word, to be of one mind with Your followers, and to live in peace. I thank You that You are the source of love and peace, and You are always with me. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and Your love, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with me and with all who call Jesus their Lord. In the precious Name of Jesus, Amen!

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)
