Remembering You

As important as it is to pray for one another, it is also important to let others know that you are praying for them.  The apostle Paul opened his second letter to Timothy with this bit of encouragement:  I thank God, whom I serve with a clear conscience the way my forefathers did, as I constantly remember you in my prayers night and day… (2 Timothy 1:3).

Scripture makes it clear that prayer is an important part of the arsenal of the soldier of the cross.  Christians understand that their “whole armor of God” is not “whole” without prayer (Ephesians 6:13-18).  However, it is also true that numerous scientific studies have shown there are health benefits just in knowing that someone is praying for you.

While Paul’s statement in this passage is not about Timothy’s health, the fact of the matter is, it’s encouraging to hear that someone thanks God daily in their prayers…just for you!

This morning, I want to make it clear that I am so very thankful for the readers of this blog.  It is my prayer that you be encouraged as you read it.  I truly want you to know that God loves you and so do I.

One thought on “Remembering You

  1. I am so thankful that I have the gift of salvation (Rom 6:23); the gift of prayer (Eph 1:3); and the things mentioned in 2 Tim 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”. I appreciate you sharing this article Donnie. It is extremely encouraging to me and I am confident to others as well.
