1 Corinthians 9

Read chapter

Dear God,

thank You for Your Word and for this chapter. Thank You for reminding me that I am called to run the race of faith with perseverance and self-discipline. Help me to live my life in a way that honors You and brings glory to Your name.

Lord, I pray for the strength and endurance to continue pressing forward, even when I face challenges and obstacles. Help me to keep my focus on the prize of eternal life with You. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I may run this race with faith and determination.

I ask for Your wisdom to know when to exercise my freedom and when to limit myself for the sake of others. Help me to live a life of love and selflessness, just as You have shown us through Your Son, Jesus Christ.

Thank You for Your grace that sustains me each day. I surrender my desires and ambitions to Your will, trusting that Your plans are infinitely better than my own. Guide me and empower me to live as a faithful and dedicated follower of Christ.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
