Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the gift of encouragement, and the strength to endure trials and tribulations that come our way. May we all seek to encourage others as they go through their difficult and often heartbreaking periods in life.
Father, help us to offer ourselves as blessings to each other, whether it is to share a smile, a good laugh, a hug, or some homemade cookies! For when we have done unto the least of these we have done it unto the Lord.
In the name of Jesus, we pray – Amen!
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.Romans 15:5-6 NIV
