Prayer

"I prayed for you today."

Isn't that one of the most encouraging things you can hear?  Paul, in his epistle to the Colossians, tells the believers that that "we...do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding..."  What a blessing to their heart that must have been!  There have been quite a few times that I have been struggling with something and praying through it, and the next day or two I will receive an email or a letter that says, "The Lord brought you to mind today and I have been praying for you."  What a precious confirmation of Christ's love and care!  This week, as the Spirit brings someone to mind, take time to pray for them.  Not just for the physical needs that they might have, but that they will grow in Christ, and know His will, and obey His Word, and be fruitful in His work.  Then let them know that you are thinking about them through a note, a phone call or an email.  It will be an encouragement to you both!
