Discovering God…Empowering People…Fulfilling Destinies

Day 12 – 31 Days of Prayer

Truth for Today

“So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” I Thessalonians 5:11

Thought for Today

How can we be a good friend? How can we especially be a good Christian friend? It seems encouraging and building each other up would be a wonderful starting point. We all need to have a word of encouragement now and then. It makes all the difference. So often, it’s easy for us to focus on the negative, rather than the positive, such as the mistakes others make. As we go about our day, let’s make the effort to be a good friend by speaking a word of encouragement to the people we come in contact with.

Prayer for Today

Father, I want to be a good friend just as You are a good friend. Jesus, help me to encourage others by building them up rather than tearing them down. Holy Spirit, let me see others the way you see them so I might be a good friend today. Amen.
