Enduring Word Bible- #48
Thanksgiving and Prayer
Paul's prayer for the people in Philippi.
He speaks of joy in remembrance,
and is filled with the hope
of all the good things the Lord
has already done
and will continue to do
in the lives of the faithful.
Today this was a part of a farewell service
for a pastor and his wife
who teamed in ministry
in a congregation for 23 years.
What a blessing-
this partnership in the Gospel.
May this be the prayer
for all who serve in ministry,
and indeed for all of the
Lord's church here on earth.
That the Lord may bring it to completion-
what He has begun.
