Paul’s Prayer for the Philippians

I thank my God for every remembrance of you, always in every one of my prayers for all of you, praying with joy for your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.(A) I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will continue to complete[a] it until the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to think this way about all of you, because I hold you in my heart,[b] for all of you are my partners in God’s grace,[c] both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.(B) For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the tender affection of Christ Jesus.(C) And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight(D) 10 to help you to determine what really matters, so that in the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless, 11 having produced the harvest[d] of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.
