This is a prayer for a Christian friend. There are moments when we can feel so close to our brothers and sisters in Christ. Especially when they have supported and comforted us through difficult times. You may even run out of things to say in prayer for them so the Holy Spirit has provided this one by way of the Apostle Paul for us.
This prayer for a Christian friend you can pray daily if you feel led. This was a prayer said by the Apostle Paul, while he was in prison, for his fried Philemon.
Philemon is a one chapter book found in the new testament of the bible. We don’t hear a lot about this book but it is a very quick read and there is so much insight and knowledge on grace, forgiveness, friendship and brotherhood in this book.
First let’s share the scripture in 4 different versions so that you can meditate on it:
Philemon 1:6 The Voice (VOICE) “Thank You, Father, for Philemon. I pray that as he goes and tells his story of faith, he would tell everyone so that they will know for certain all the good that comes to those who put their trust in the Anointed One.”
Philemon 6 New Living Translation (NLT) “And I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ.
Philemon 6 King James Version (KJV) “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.”
Philemon 6 Amplified Bible (AMP) “I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective and powerful because of your accurate knowledge of every good thing which is ours in Christ.”
So you can just pray this pray directly as it is in the scriptures by inserting their name where it says Philemon.
Thank You, Father, for _______. I pray that as he/she goes and tells his/her story of faith, he/she would tell everyone so that they will know for certain all the good that comes to those who put their trust in the Anointed One.
This is a very simple, beautiful and powerful prayer that when prayed daily you should see the amazing way in which God will work through this person for his Kingdom.
