Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
Yesterday was truly a special day of sharing about the challenges of faith and confidence in prayer. I want to sincerely thank those who shared their thoughts in such powerful words. Having read the comments, I felt led to depart from the Dear Libby format today to focus on words of encouragement from the Bible. Tomorrow we will return to Libby and discuss the Discipline of Fasting.
I was so struck by the words of encouragement in the comments yesterday and the references to Bible verses that I would like to continue on that theme for one more day. Let’s do what the verse above from 1 Thessalonians admonishes us to do, with particular focus on prayer.
Please think about a verse or passage of scripture that encourages you to remain faithful in prayer to God even when you feel discouraged. It doesn’t matter if you can’t remember the verse exactly or the reference, just share what you remember.
