I thank God

Wednesday, November 23, 2022

"We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people." Col. 1:3-4 (NIV)

Do you know a person who displays faith in Christ and love for all God's people? I certainly do. I have several people in mind. These people have the following characteristics:

• They do not crumble when they face trials and tribulations;

• They have true joy;

• They are givers;

• They display incredible hope in God. 

I want to encourage you to pray on behalf of the people you have in mind. 

Here are a few things we can pray for:

• Thanksgiving for the life they live 

• Gratitude for their friendship 

• Pray that they will be strong when facing adversity

• Pray that the joy of the Lord will be displayed in their lives 

• Pray for their health and well-being

We may think that people who display faith in the Lord do not need our prayers. Let us remember to offer our gratitude to God for them and let's pray for them by name. 

Prayer: Lord, I lift up (insert your friend's name here) to you. I thank you for our friendship. Thank you that she shines your light everywhere she goes. Supply all her needs. Bless her and everything that concerns her this day, in Jesus' name, Amen.
