These are the Apostle Paul’s words as he addresses the church at Philippi in Greece.
Help us at all times, throughout our joys and sorrows, to keep our eyes fixed on you – the Most righteous, the Most joyous and the Most honourable of all.
Let us not be discouraged by the evil that is going on around us. Help us to turn away from the chaos and panic that is portrayed in the media and protect us from getting caught up in harmful gossip.
Instead, let us be immersed in Your Word through Scripture and prayer, and to always seek inspiration and encouragement through joyful music, and the unity of fellowship.
No matter what injustices and suffering in the world, there is infinitely more to thank and praise You for, therefore we ask that we may be strengthened to keep our sights on Heaven and Heavenly things.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
