ENCOURAGE SOMEONE WITH THANKSGIVING AND PRAYER
Phil 1:3I thank my God every time I remember you.
Phil 1:4In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy
Phil 1:5because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,
Phil 1:6being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Phil 1:7It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart; for whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me.
Phil 1:8God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
Phil 1:9And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,
Phil 1:10so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ,
Phil 1:11filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.
Today, I encourage you to buy one blank card and write this Scripture in it. Then, mail it to the person who has influenced and encouraged you with the love of God. To God be the glory!
