I thank You, Lord, that as according to 2 Corinthians, You always lead me in triumphal procession in Christ and through me You spread everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of You. For I am to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. I thank you, Lord, that in Christ I speak before you with sincerity like men sent from You, God. And as a man sent from God, I speak the words of God, for you give the Spirit without limit as according to John 3:34. And I thank You, Lord, that I, with an unveiled face, reflects Your glory and I am being transformed into your likeness with ever increasing glory which comes from You, Lord.. Help me always to remember that my light and momentary troubles are achieving for me an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
Father, with your help I purify myself from everything that contaminates body and spirit perfecting holiness out of reverence for You, God. And I pray, Lord, that just as I excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in love for You and others, that I will also excel in the grace of giving, And I thank You, Lord, that You who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food, will also supply and increase my store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of my righteousness, that I will be made rich in every way so that I can be generous on every occasion and through the generosity, it will result in thanksgiving to God.
I thank you that the service that I perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is overflowing in many expressions of thanks to You, God. And men will praise you for the obedience that accompanies my confession of the Gospel of Christ. Thank you that as others pray for me, their hearts will go out to me because of the surpassing grace that You, Lord, have given to me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
