did you take the time to read the section I shared from Philippians 1? (first 11 verses)
What jumped out at you?
Some things that hit me:
verses 9 – 10 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ
Wow! What a prayer. Paul prayed this for his Philippian fellow Christians. This is truly something worth longing after.
I also liked verse 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ-to the glory and praise of God.
That’s what I yearn to be filled with. That fruit of righteousness…it can only be found through Jesus.
Some more things for you to think about…when it comes to prayer, actual conversing with God, one on one, what are your habits? How much time do you spend in an average day actually talking to the Lord?
What specific requests did Paul bring before God when he prayed for the Philippians? (look back over verses 1-11 to stir your mind)
How does Paul’s prayer compare to the ones you tend to pray?
How does increasing in knowledge and insight help in your spiritual growth?
