prayer for the week

Almighty and merciful God, it is only by your gift that your faithful people offer you true and laudable service: Grant that we may run without stumbling to obtain your heavenly promises; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Amen,
"only by your gift that your faithful people offer you true and laudable service"

This is something to think about. It is only by GOD's gift that we minister. This is not a man centered activity.

Yes, Mike. I think too often we get in the way or it's more us. But Paul certainly saw it all as grace and a gift- all he did.
