Praying from Philippians 2:4 relating to Selflessness, Community, Love
Dear God, please help me to not only focus on my own needs and desires, but also to be mindful of the needs and desires of others. May I have a heart that is willing to serve and love those around me, putting their needs before my own. Help me to be selfless and compassionate, just as Jesus was when He walked on this earth. Thank you for the example He set for us, and for the grace and strength to follow in His footsteps. Amen.
Verse: each of you not just looking to his own things, but each of you also to the things of others.
This is a Command. The verse instructs the reader to not only focus on their own interests but also to consider the interests of others.
