Paul’s Prayer for the Philippians

September 30th, 2012

Philippians 1:9-11 says, “I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God.”

Paul’s prayer contained some great things for the Philippians…

1. That their love will overflow more and more.
2. That they would keep growing in knowledge and understanding of God.
3. That they would really understand what really matters in life
4. That they would live pure and blameless lives until Jesus comes back
5. That they would be filled with righteous character

What would the result of all these things be? Bring much glory and praise to God.

A great prayer which would bring a great result!

God Bless,
