Heavenly Father, thank You for my brothers and sisters in Christ and I pray that together we may grow in grace and mature in the faith as we 'gossip the gospel' together and rejoice that our names are written in heaven. Thank You that we are one in Christ and members of His body. Thank You for the lessons we can learn from the little book of Philemon, and the pointers it contains in spiritual growth, Christian love and forgiveness. I pray that my words and actions would be pleasing in Your sight and that I may be one that refreshes the hearts of the saints, for Your praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, as I read through the little letter from Paul to Philemon, how good it is to see the many lessons we can learn from this unfortunate incident, where a runaway slave returned to his master, as a born-again brother in Christ. Thank You that the things in life that were once useless to You can be used for Your praise and glory, when a life in given over to Jesus. Help me to act responsibly in the work you have given me to do and I pray that I may show godly grace and Christ-like love to my brothers and sisters in Christ - knowing you work all things together for good. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

May my life become a living example of gracious love - that reflects the deep love of Christ for me - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
