Allow the light of faith to shine

I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers, because I hear of your love and of the faith that you have toward the Lord Jesus and for all the saints, and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ.(Philemon 1:4-6 ESV)

Я завсіди дякую Богові моєму, коли тебе згадую в молитвах своїх. Бо я чув про любов твою й віру, яку маєш до Господа Ісуса, і до всіх святих, щоб спільність віри твоєї діяльна була в пізнанні всякого добра, що в нас для Христа. (До Филимона 4-6 Ukrainian)

O LORD my God, hear the prayers of your people of faith on this new day that bursts forth with fresh and clear evidence that you made us in your image. Give us clear minds so that we will respond to all the guidance that your Spirit provides for everyone who obeys Jesus Christ as Lord of our lives. Give a sense of worthwhile achievement to Christians in small churches and in remote places. Give leaders in large congregations a sense of true humility so that they will never think they are more important in the vast Kingdom of Christ than other followers of Jesus who fight the good fight of faith each day in very difficult circumstances. Expand our combined efforts to allow the light of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ to shine more brightly on every continent and islands in the seas. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
