Encouragement

encourage

I hope that you have been diligently praying for the wives of your overseers/elders this week.

Part of effective prayer is watching for the results.

Please get in touch with these ladies in your church and give them some encouragement. Send them a text, email, card or just give them a call. Let them know that you have been thinking about them and praying for them. If you want, tell them specifically what you are praying for them. There is nothing more uplifting then to know that someone has been praying to our God—the Creator of all the earth, the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful God—on your behalf.

It’s even more heartwarming to know that the prayers were unasked for.

As Christians, we need to help each other strive toward heaven.

For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are away or asleep we might live with Him. Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up just as you are doing

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 ESV, emphasis mine

Keep praying to great effect!
