May the peace of the Lord be with us

The Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Philippi and beyond: May the grace and peace of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Every time I remember you, I thank my God. Every day I pray for you with joy – from the first day until now – for your fellowship in the Gospel gives confidence that the good work God began in you will come to completion in the day of Jesus Christ. It’s right to think this way as our hearts hold us together in the Grace of God, confining us to defend and confirm the Gospel. With God as my witness, I long for you to have the compassion of Jesus Christ. And this is my prayer: That your love may abound more and more with full knowledge and insight, so you may know what’s best and be sincere without offending Christ – filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes to you through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God. © 2013, Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-phrase of today’s Daily Bible Reading in Phi
