I thank You Father every time I remember my loved ones, family and friends. I am confident of this, that You began a good work in them and will carry it on to completion until the day Jesus returns.
It is right for me to feel this way about them, since I have them in my heart. I know they share in Your grace with me. Lord You know how I long for all of them with the love of Christ Jesus.
May their love keep growing in knowledge and every kind of discernment, so that they are able to discern what is best and they may be pure and blameless, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through You Jesus—to the glory and praise of God. Amen.
