Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith
in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the
saints, do not cease to give thanks for you,
making mention of you in my prayers.

God, the beauty of this earth reminds me of you. The sea, forest, and mountains are your creation, a reflection of your power and goodness.

I pray that you would put godly counsel in my path. Give me the courage to seek mentorship and discipleship. Don’t let me depend on my own wisdom but on yours and those wiser than I.

Be with those who have absent family members and feel abandoned. Show them that you are their great Father who is able to fill that lonely place.

Thank you for your faithfulness and the gift of friendship. Thank you for bringing people into my life to encourage me to draw near to you.

In Jesus’ name, amen.
