Powerful Daily Prayers – Foregoing Rights
1 Corinthians 9:1-18
Dear Father, who sees my heart,
Help me to follow the excellent example of the Apostle Paul. Though he had a right to earn his livelihood from his preaching, he didn’t do so. He chose not to make full use of his rights in the gospel and instead preached the message free of charge.
Grant that my service to you will not be motivated by monetary gain or personal ambition. Whatever I do, let it be done out of love for you, your Son, your Word and your holy people.
Help me never to put any obstacle in the way of the proclamation of the Good News about Jesus Christ to all who need to hear.
In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
