Seeking God’s Pleasure – A Study of Philippians
“What to Pray for Those You Love”
Our prayers for others are often so insipid and small-minded in what we ask for. Paul here offers a meaty prayer whose petitions, when granted by God, become the source of great spiritual and practical blessing: that God’s love, informed by knowledge and discernment (i. e., wisdom), will abound so that the Philippians will hit the bull’s-eye of moral virtue in their everyday lives (pure and blameless), evidencing the full fruit of righteousness, whose source is Jesus. All this to the glory of God – a prayer that God is sure to answer!
