Life for the Apostle Paul was akin to that of great leaders of recent history who have suffered for their faith. Some of these heroes may be world famous; some may only be known within your community or in the confines of your own home. Perhaps even you, in the midst of feeling imprisoned by chronic pain, are a Paul.
Prayer: Gracious God, help us to trust that your grace is sufficient. May your power be made perfect in our weaknesses.
