And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:8-11 ESV)
смирил Себя, быв послушным даже до смерти, и смерти крестной. Посему и Бог превознес Его и дал Ему имя выше всякого имени, дабы пред именем Иисуса преклонилось всякое колено небесных, земных и преисподних, и всякий язык исповедал, что Господь Иисус Христос в славу Бога Отца. (Филиппийцам 2:8-11 Russian)
O LORD our God who made heaven and earth ~ thank you for the power and strength that you have used from before the dawn of that first day to make our lives possible and indeed highly desirable. Arouse stronger faith in many people who call upon you for help in times of great danger and in fear of losing some earthly possession, so that they will wholeheartedly seek to know Jesus as Lord and obey the gospel message that leads to eternal life. Help every Christian to lovingly and joyfully speak about our true faith of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Forgive our foolish inhibitions that cause us to pause speaking up for the doctrine of Christ because we may think it might offend someone who doesn’t share our faith. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
