Philippians 1: 12 -14
12 Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. 13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. 14 And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.
God is able and will use every situation to advance the Gospel. Do we ask God to use our situations that we find ourselves in, whatever they may be, to advance the Gospel.
When we pray for someone who is in need or trouble, we should pray that their situation would advance the Gospel. This reminds us of the great importance of getting the Gospel out. As we look at what God has done for us we become confident in Him and we become more courageous in speaking about him
Thank you, lord, that you use all situation for the advance of the Gospel. Thank you that you do not turn your back on any situation or circumstance that we find ourselves in.
We pray that in all situations the Gospel would be advanced.
Please give to us confidence in you, in all situations, and a courage to speak of you. Amen
