Paul’s letter to the Philippians     1: 4-6, 8-11

1:4 always, in all my prayers, making supplication for all of you with joy,
1:5 because of your communion in the Gospel of Christ, from the first day even until now.
1:6 I am confident of this very thing: that he who has begun this good work in you will perfect it, unto the day of Christ Jesus.
1:8 For God is my witness how, within the heart of Jesus Christ, I long for all of you.
1:9 And this I pray: that your charity may abound more and more, with knowledge and with all understanding,
1:10 so that you may be confirmed in what is better, in order that you may be sincere and without offense on the day of Christ:
1:11 filled with the fruit of justice, through Jesus Christ, in the glory and praise of God.
