"I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all." Philippians 1:3-4 NASB
Paul had a habit of remembering his friends at Philippi. As Paul remembered them, he prayed for them. His prayer was a joyous, thankful prayer for all the Philippian Christians. He cared for them deeply and entreated God to bless them. Whenever we think of friends what better thing could we do than to pray for them. We should pray thanking God for their friendship and seeking God to bless them in whatever they are doing at that moment. Pray that they would feel God's presence and guidance in their lives that very moment. What better thing could we do for our friends than to pray?
God, thank you for my friends. Teach me how to pray for them as I think of them.
