I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. - Philippians 1:3-6
Today I am thankful for the many Christian friends you have placed on earth with me to encourage me and to do your work together with me. I see you working in their lives and changing them into the people you want them to be. Help me to be the friend you wanted them to have in me. Give me eyes to see their needs and a heart to step up and meet the ones I can. Today, give each of them a special touch of your love so they grow in faith as they slug it out in this tough world.
