In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now… (Philippians 1:4-5)
Who did you pray for yesterday? Were you able to pray with joy? Paul could, because he was praying for fellow believers. There is a sweetness that comes when you are praying for a “partner in the gospel.” Knowing that they are saved frees you to pray for their sanctification, to pray that they would draw closer to Christ every day.
Pick someone who is your partner in the gospel. It can be the same person you prayed for yesterday, or it can be someone else. I’m not keeping track. Pray for them, that God will draw them closer and closer to himself, and cause them to be conformed to the image of Christ, even this day.
Who knows? Someone out there may be praying for you.
Happy Tuesday, Beloved.
