Countdown to Christmas – Praying with joy

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy… Philippians 1:3-4 NIV

God places so many people in our lives who encourage our faith, our perseverance, our hope in Christ. He never meant for us to stand alone. God made marriage, family, community, church so we might walk through life hand in hand.

Paul opens his letter to the church in Philippi with gratitude and prayers of joy regarding their relationship with him.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to receive letters from friends filled with their love and appreciation for our relationships?

Better yet, let’s be the ones who write letters to them!

Join me and send Christmas greetings to friends, family, and other significant people in your life letting them know how much you appreciate them – how praying for them gives you joy.

And let us give thanks to God for these dear ones he’s placed in our lives who encourage our relationship with him.

I’ll begin.

Dear friend,

I thank my God every time I remember you.  In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy.

Love, Nicole
