Sharing Your Friends with God

Do you share your friends with God? You’re probably wondering what that means. Some may even think it’s a typo and should read, “Do you share God with your friends?” While it is important to share Jesus with our friends, it’s just as important to share our friends with God through prayer. When our friends come to us with big problems we can’t fix—like parents divorcing, major illnesses, or the death of a loved one—we can feel helpless. But we are not without help: as Christians, we can share our friends with God, bringing their concerns to Him in prayer. And we don’t even have to wait for hard times to share our friends with God; we can pray for our friends “at all times” (Ephesians 6:18). Today’s Scripture passage is Paul’s prayer for his friends in Thessalonica. He thanked God for them and prayed for their growth in Christ. In the same way, we can bring our friends and all their needs before Jesus, our Savior and Friend. • Melissa Yeagle • Read Hebrews 4:14-16. As Christians, why can we approach God in prayer about anything? • What are some problems your friends are facing right now? Talk with Jesus about them. • What are problems you are facing right now? Who are friends you can ask to pray for you? So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. 2 Thessalonians 1:11 (NLT)
