Praying from Philemon 1:8 relating to Authority, Boldness, Appropriateness.
Dear Lord, I thank you for the boldness that you have given me in Christ. Help me to use this boldness to command and lead others in a way that is appropriate and pleasing to you. May my words and actions always reflect your love and grace. Guide me in all that I do, and may I always seek to honor you in everything. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Verse: Therefore though I have all boldness in Christ to command you that which is appropriate,
This is a Command. The verse is a statement by Paul that he has the authority to command the reader to do what is appropriate. However, the specific command is not stated in this verse.
