And one thing more: Prepare a guest room for me, because I hope to be restored to you in answer to your prayers. Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, sends you greetings. And so doMark, Aristarchus, Demas and Luke, my fellow workers. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.- Philemon 22-25
Dear Lord Jesus,
I love Paul’s optimism. He was in jail and did not know what would happen in court. Yet, he believed he would be freed to visit his friend. So, he shared his plans based on hope. I know my future is bright because you have redeemed my whole life and made it yours. Give me optimism to plan visits with people that you and I both love dearly. Bless my plans and make them what you want them to be. And when I get to see close friends who live far away, give me the power to be all there and not on my phone or wasting time in other distractions. AMEN

God loves to see close, godly friends get together so he can work on through them to enrich their lives.
