Scripture Reading — Philippians 1:1-11

In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy …Philippians 1:4 — 

Paul served others through prayer. We know of no more effective way to serve others than through prayer. It’s the foundation of our response to Jesus’ calling.

Nearly everyone will respond positively to your offer to pray for them. We suggest these steps:

Ask God to help you see and understand the people in your life with whom you have regular contact.

As God lays certain names on your heart, commit to praying for them regularly.

Be sensitive to seeing them with Jesus’ eyes, taking note of what you see and experience.

Humbly, simply let them know they are among the people you pray for. Invite them to name more specific prayer requests.

Within a week, find opportunity to follow up.


Lord, people are hungry for prayer. Open our eyes to see the people among our contacts who need you. Help us to touch others with your compassion and love. Amen.

Serving is all about being a witness. It’s about setting aside time in our busy schedules to share God’s love with others. It’s about looking beyond your to-do list, your calendar of events and your dirty floors to meet the needs of others in your church, your neighborhood, your community and your world.



Yes, it takes time, a little planning and a bit of sacrifice, but serving together deepens our relationship, causes us to communicate on levels we normally wouldn’t and helps us look beyond our own little world to the needs of others. There are many, many ways you can be a witness in your church.
Here are several ideas:
  • Teach Sunday school together or work in the nursery.
  • Mentor a younger couple or new parents.
  • Serve as church greeters, perhaps together with your children. Your kids will learn how to greet others, and those who are greeted love seeing them.
  • Offer to baby-sit for couples in your church. Parents with younger children are often in desperate need of “alone time” for shopping or a date night.
  • Have a few church kids over to make gifts for their parents.
  • Have a cookie-baking fest with a few couples in the church, then share your baked goods.
  • Offer to help a single/senior person decorate their home for Christmas; no one wants to decorate alone.
  • Teach adults and/or children your woodworking, knitting or other craft skills.
  • Teach younger couples about once-a-month cooking, organizing or other practical skills. Don’t forget; men like to cook, too.
  • If you’re mechanical or a handyman, help a single mom or older couple with car maintenance or a fix-it project.
Doing these things together is a witness of couple teamwork and a definite blessing to others.
