Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/23/10

This week’s scripture is from Colossians:

“For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding…”    (Col. 1:9) 

What a great blessing is prayer: Our Lord Jesus Christ prayed about everything in every circumstance, and He prayed to His Father for others, resulting in healing and believing and faith. Let us be mindful to pray, but let us remember to also pray for and encourage each other in prayer. Pray that they come to know God’s will in whatever situation they face, that the wisdom of God be understood through the Holy Spirit, and that they receive the blessings of the Lord — each according to their need. Pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ; pray without ceasing, and know His blessing.

May the Lord bless you with prayers of faith and encouragement for the brethren.
