A Collect for Remembering to Pray for Those We Love

Heavenly Father, who hears the prayers of your people, let us not forget to talk with you about those we love, that we would thank you for their presence in our lives and the work you are doing in and through them for your glory and their joy, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who abides with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect union. Amen. ‘ We always give thanks to God for all of you and mention you in our prayers, constantly remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.’ – 1 Thes. 1:2-3
