Morning Prayer Guide - Thursday

Read: Philippians 4:10-15 and Psalm 145:8-9, 14-21

St. Paul’s famous line, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” is found within its context. We tend to rip it out and use it for many different situations. While it’s certainly true that Christ does strengthen us to do whatever he leads us to do, the context is St. Paul’s financial support and his ability to survive whether he has a lot of support or none at all. He writes that through Jesus he is able to make it when there is little outside help, just as he is able to when there is enough.

Take a few moments to consider this. How can you help financially? How can you help in other ways? Does your church support any foreign missionaries? How has God spoken to you through this? Write your own prayer.
