Lord God, I pray that people in Your church will truly learn how to love one another. May their love for You grow beyond their own walls and into the lives of everyone they meet. As Your hands and feet, we are here to serve You and others equally. There is never to be less love for anyone in our company. This is because You are the vine and we are the branches. If we can't get along with one another then we would not be able to fulfill Your calling in our lives and other people would suffer. So at this hour we pray that we will always abide in You and You in us. Lead us by the hand and give us boldness to speak to people. Open our mouths, that we may have meaningful conversations that are heartfelt. I know that we are incapable of loving the way we ought to, but with Your love and passion in our lives, every person that meets us will experience Your love like never before. Every ounce of fear and depression will be swept away and replaced with love and encouragement. I know God that this world would be a much better place if we started to truly live our faith out. You would be able to take us places like never before and allow us to help others in the church grow. May we always remember that every person that has faith in You is also Your child, that we may treat them this way. May kindness flow deep inside our hearts and onto every person that is in our midst. Thank You God for Your direction. Help us to always look to help others before ourselves. I love You. Amen.

1 I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea:
2 That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also.
Your fellowship with other believers in the faith makes a world of difference. This strengthens the church and is God directed.
Truly a church that is on fire for the Lord are also church goers who are loving on, encouraging, praying for, and doing what they can to help one another. Continue Reading
