I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, because I hear about your love for all his holy people and your faith in the Lord Jesus. I pray that your partnership with us in the faith may be effective in deepening your understanding of every good thing we share for the sake of Christ. Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people. Philemon 1:4-7

Father, I thank you for the encouragers in my life. Bless them today, I pray. Help me to love and encourage others. Help me to be an example of faith and courage. Help me to advance and not retreat.
