Lord, I love my brothers and sisters in Christ. Thank you for bringing them into my life. Thank you for the unity in our body. Thank you for their powerful faith. Thank you for the assurance I have that they are close by and ready to help at the hint of my need. May we commit ourselves to loving each other in Christ. Be glorified in our activity. Thank you for this little bit of heaven here on earth in your precious name and powerful authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“But now that Timothy has come to us from you, and has brought us the good news of your faith and love and reported that you always remember us kindly and long to see us, as we long to see you—for this reason, brothers, in all our distress and affliction we have been comforted about you through your faith.” (1 Thessalonians 3:6-7 ESV)
