Besides everything else, I face daily the pressure of my concern for all the churches. 2 Corinthians 11:28 (NIV)
Passage: 2 Corinthians 11:16-33
Throughout our lives we face many challenges. Dealing with these challenges can wear us down. This passage reminds us that others suffer and endure too – in some cases in much more profound ways that we do. But even so, we look to our God for relief, comfort, and restoration. In addition to all of the personal challenges we face, many of us have a burden for our church and other churches that proclaim Jesus, the Christ, as Lord and Savior of us and the world. Father God, may you walk beside us as we labor for our churches. May you keep us on the path of righteousness for Your sake. May You send out more workers, into the mission field, so our burdens might be shared. These things I pray, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
