Bible: Philippians 1:3-8

Prayer for the Church

1:3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 1  1:4 I always pray with joy in my every prayer for all of you 1:5 because of your participation 2  in the gospel from the first day until now. 3  1:6 For I am sure of this very thing, 4  that the one 5  who began a good work in 6  you will perfect it 7  until the day of Christ Jesus. 1:7 For 8  it is right for me to think this about all of you, because I have you in my heart, 9  since both in my imprisonment 10  and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel all of you became partners in God’s grace 11  together with me. 1:8 For God is my witness that I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
