Praying from Philippians 3:8 relating to Sacrifice, Knowledge of Christ, Gain Christ.
Dear Lord Jesus,
I pray that I may have the same mindset as the apostle Paul, who counted all things as loss for the excellency of knowing You. Help me to see that everything else in this world is nothing compared to the joy and fulfillment that comes from knowing You.
May I be willing to suffer the loss of all things for Your sake, and count them as nothing but refuse. I pray that I may gain You, Lord, and that You would be the center of my life.
Thank You for the sacrifice You made on the cross for me, and for the opportunity to know You intimately. I pray that I may continue to grow in my knowledge of You and that You would be glorified in my life.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Verse: Yes most certainly, and I count all things to be a loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord, for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and count them nothing but refuse, that I may gain Christ
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to count all things as loss for the sake of gaining Christ.
