So the plan has been to post every Tuesday and Friday, and here it is Tuesday and Friday's post is still headlining. Well, I'm just having an extraordinarily busy week with some car trouble, a couple of big assignments due soon, and shifting my schedule to be able to attend the Ligonier Conference at Grace Church this weekend. So, no new post this morning.

I actually do have another comment or two to make about Friday's post, which, in the absence of something new, I'll encourage you to read or even re-read while you wait. But if you can't wait, I'm including some of the prayers of the Bible that I find particularly encouraging, and will ask you to pray them for me during this busy time.

Thank you again to all of you who read For Our Benefit.

For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.

For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints, do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.

The Lord bless you, and keep you; The Lord make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.
