Stewardship Thought for the Week

The words from our Gospel reading may seem strange...I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those You have given me. Here Jesus is not praying for unbeliever's though it is God's will that all should be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Tim. 2:4). Yet, we pray for unbelievers (especially ones in our families) every time we share God's gifts with others!
