Day 19 – True Prosperity

Part of learning to live with a chronic illness realizes our true prosperity is in the Lord Jesus Christ. Today’s passage speaks on our mental health and general well-being.

Today’s Bible Verse:

3 John 1:2 (KJV), “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

What the Verse Means:

John, the author, is addressing Gaius. Prosperity here is mental health and general well-being.  John wants Gaius to prosper and have good health equal to his spiritual health.

Personalized Prayer Using Today’s Scripture:

  • Heavenly Father, I pray that I may prosper, that is to be healthy fiscally. Why? Not to be rich but to care for my family and pay my medical bills.
  • Lord Jesus, I pray that I would be in physically good health and that health would mirror our spiritual health.
  • I pray for rest and peace of mind.
