Praying from Philippians 3:13 relating to Redemption, Perseverance, Renewal.
Dear God, my loving Father, I come before you today with a humble heart. I acknowledge that I have not yet taken hold of all that you have in store for me. But I pray that you help me to forget the things that are behind me, the mistakes, the failures, and the disappointments. Help me to focus on the things that are before me, the opportunities, the blessings, and the promises that you have for me. Give me the strength to stretch forward and press on towards the goal that you have set before me. I pray that you guide me every step of the way and help me to stay focused on you. Thank you for your love, your grace, and your mercy. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Verse: Brothers, I don’t regard myself as yet having taken hold, but one thing I do: forgetting the things which are behind and stretching forward to the things which are before,
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to forget the things which are behind and stretch forward to the things which are before.
