I Corinthians 12:18

PRAYER

I Corinthians 12:18 But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 
 


PRAYER:

Great God and Lord, thank you for your grace that brought me from unbelief and made me a member of the body of Christ. You carefully gifted me with unique abilities to serve the entire body. Yet too often I fail to see my own special gifts. At times with a jealous eye and an envious heart I covet the spiritual blessings of others. This kind of thinking doesn’t build up the body, it tears it down! Forgive me for this offensive behavior; eradicate it from my mind. Build me up each day with your love and your full forgiveness. Grant me a spirit that is content with my spiritual gifts and grateful for the gifts you have given others. Grant in me a desire to use my spiritual gifts with eagerness and joy! In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
