Prayers in the Bible: Paul prays for the Philippians

Philippians 1:9 This I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and all discernment; so that you may approve the things that are excellent; that you may be sincere and without offense to the day of Christ; 11 being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. (World English Bible, public domain)

A most appropriate prayer for Christians to pray for other believers!

Thanks for reading. Pray for me. This is part of a series on prayers in the Bible. The previous post is here.

Love this part too .. "abound yet more and more in knowledge"

Seems the more I study and learn about Christ the more I realize the his statement of "the way, the truth, the life."

I'm not quite sure what you mean -- I think there's a word, or more, that didn't get into your comment -- but yes, we should "abound yet more and more in knowledge."
