Good morning, Father!
Thank you so much for the awesome way in which you are working in my life and the lives of my loved ones! Please continue to bring healing to my friend in New York, and encourage her with your awesome presence and closeness and care. Thank you for motivating my husband and myself, and giving us things to look forward to in breaking away from the burden of this dwelling place. Thank you for bringing my college son new hope through a passport and plans for travel and to visit what may turn out to be his Mate! Thank you for bringing my oldest son back to the mountains he loves, and thank you for giving my youngest son a stable career in the air force while he learns more about himself (and hopefully YOU!) and what he wishes to give to the world. Please bring good opportunities for my daughter as well, Father. Help her to start looking to you for her strength and guidance, and please provide a SAFE place for her to live while my husband and I are essentially homeless. Thank you for ALL your awesome mercy, grace, and provision, Faithful Shepherd. Amen! 😀
Philippians 1:3-11 ERV
I thank God every time I remember you.
And I always pray for all of you with joy.
I thank God for the help you gave me while I told people the Good News. You helped from the first day you believed until now.
I am sure that the good work God began in you will continue until he completes it on the day when Jesus Christ comes again.
I know I am right to think like this about all of you because you are so close to my heart. This is because you have all played such an important part in God’s grace to me—now, during this time that I am in prison, and whenever I am defending and proving the truth of the Good News.
God knows that I want very much to see you. I love all of you with the love of Christ Jesus.
This is my prayer for you: that your love will grow more and more; that you will have knowledge and understanding with your love;
that you will see the difference between what is important and what is not and choose what is important; that you will be pure and blameless for the coming of Christ;
that your life will be full of the many good works that are produced by Jesus Christ to bring glory and praise to God.
