Ephesians 6:23-24 (JDV)

Ephesians 6:23 Peace to the brothers and sisters, and care with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 6:24 Favor be with all who have an indestructible1 care for our Lord Jesus Christ.

the cycle of care and favor

Paul first pronounces a blessing of God’s care upon the recipients of his letter. Then, he asserts that God’s favor will rest on all those who manifest this care. He calls this care indestructible. What he describes is a cycle of care and favor. The care first comes from God as a result of prayer. Then, it flows back to God from the devotees. One of the results of this care for Christ is prayer for his church. This restarts the cycle.

Lord, we want to start the cycle in our own community, so we are asking you to bless our local church with an indestructible care for you.
