Fellowship of Faith Prayer…

To a brother and sister and their family who are struggling with a serious illness and whose lives have been turned upside down in the past two weeks…

To several brothers and sisters and their families who shared their lives with us last night through food, testimonies, prayers, and exhortations…

To a brother and sister and their family who included us in a fun outing to the soccer fields…

To three brothers I spoke with over the phone and who encouraged me even though we didn’t talk in person…

I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers, because I hear of your love and of the faith that you have toward the Lord Jesus and all the saints, and I pray that the sharing [fellowship] of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ. For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother [my brothers and sisters], because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you. (Philemon 1:4-7 ESV)
