121 Days of Prayer

The purposes of this prayer are: Humility, Friendship/Fellowship, Mercy and Lovingkindness.

Merciful Lord, of all our sins, pride is perhaps the most difficult to overcome. When addressing spiritual gifts in his first epistle to the Corinthians, Paul wrote, “It is much truer that the members of the body seem to be weaker are necessary; and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on those we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are Christ’s body, and individually members of it.” 1 Corinthians 12:22–27 (NASB). Lord, help us to remember that we are all members of the body of Christ and that no one is worthy of more honor than another, in the body of Christ. Amen.
