Praying from Philemon 1:9 relating to Love, Appeal, Imprisonment
Dear Lord, for the sake of love, I humbly appeal to you. Like Paul, I am also aged and a prisoner of Jesus Christ. Please hear my prayer and guide me in your ways. Help me to love others as you have loved me and to spread your message of hope and salvation to those around me. May your will be done in my life, and may I always seek to glorify you in all that I do. Amen.
Verse: yet for love’s sake I rather appeal to you, being such a one as Paul, the aged, but also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.
This is a Command. The verse is a plea or appeal to the reader to act out of love, despite the author’s current circumstances as a prisoner.
