Thankful for You

Today's reading: 1 Corinthians 1:1-9

After spending the last several weeks in the Old Testament Book of Genesis reading through and considering the life story of Joseph, we're now turning to the New Testament to work our way through some teaching by the apostle Paul in the Book of 1 Corinthians. This Book is filled with instruction relevant for our lives right now. So thank you for being part of Powered by 4 and joining me on this daily Bible engaging journey.

Before Paul jumps into the instructive portion of his first letter to the church at Corinth, he is intentional about encouraging this fledgling group of believers. He conveys his affection and care for them, letting them know that he is thankful for them and that he regularly lifts them up in prayer.

Is it your practice to thank God for your brothers and sisters in Christ and to regularly pray for them? When you pray for someone, do you let them know? How does it impact you when someone lets you know that they're praying for you and that they are thankful for your friendship? Tami

It is a practice of mine to thank God for my brothers and sisters in Christ Sometimes I pray for their needs, or request. But mainly I ask God to be with them, protect them, and help them with the areas they are struggling with. I don't let anyone know that I am praying for them because I may forget to pray for them I used to and they were just words now I don't. When someone tells me they are praying for me I thank them, but in my experience with in the church people say things and they really don't do what they are saying. So I have learned to be very careful in what I say.

I do believe it is important to pray for our leaders, sisters and brothers but I have not been consistent. I however do make a special effort to pray for anyone whenever he/she comes to mind, especially when I am aware they are experiencing a challenge. Whenever someone tells me they are praying for me I wonder what it is they are praying about, but generally I get a positive feeling.
