I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers because I hear about your faith in the Lord and your love for all the saints. I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. Your love has given me great joy and encouragement because you have refreshed the hearts of the saints."Philemon 1:4-7
