Paul's Prayer and Plea

Grace and peace to you, 
Friends and those who, with us, strive 
From God our Father 
And the Lord Jesus Christ 

May we always thank God 
For those, when we pray, 
Whose love for God's people 
And their faith is clearly displayed 

May our understanding deepen 
Of every good thing 
We share in Christ and may our love 
Joy and encouragement bring  

I appeal to you  
My sisters and brothers 
On the basis of love, 
Warmly welcome each other  
---
Inspired by the book of Philemon
