Malcolm Cloutt was named a 2021 Maundy Money honoree by Queen Elizabeth II, an annual service award given to British men and women. Cloutt, who was one hundred years old at the time of the recognition, was honored for having given out one thousand Bibles during his lifetime. Cloutt has kept a record of everyone who’s received a Bible and prays for them regularly.

Cloutt’s faithfulness in prayer is a powerful example of the kind of love we find throughout Paul’s writings in the New Testament. Paul often assured the recipients of his letters that he was regularly praying for them. To his friend Philemon he wrote, “I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers” (Philemon 1:4). In his letter to Timothy, Paul wrote, “Night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers” (2 Timothy 1:3). To the church in Rome, Paul emphasized that he remembered them in prayer “constantly” and “at all times” (Romans 1:9–10).

While we might not have a thousand people to pray for like Malcolm, intentional prayer for those we know is powerful because God responds to our prayers. When prompted and empowered by His Spirit to pray for a specific individual, I’ve found a simple prayer calendar can be a useful tool. Dividing names into a daily or weekly calendar helps me be faithful to pray. What a beautiful demonstration of love when we remember others in prayer.

Hi, friends. We're glad you could join us for this daily encouragement from the Our Daily Bread devotional. Our reading, titled Remember in Prayer, was written by Lisa M. Samra. Malcolm Clout was named a 2021 Maundy Money honoree by Queen Elizabeth II, an annual service award given to British men and women. Clout, who was 100 years old at the time of the recognition, was honored for having given out 1,000 Bibles during his lifetime. Clout has kept a record of everyone who's received a Bible and has prayed for them regularly. Clout's faithfulness in prayer is a powerful example of the kind of love we find throughout Paul's writings in the New Testament. Paul often assured the recipients of his letters that he was regularly praying for them. To his friend Philemon, he wrote, I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers. In his letter to Timothy, Paul wrote, Night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers. To the church in Rome, Paul emphasized that he remembered them in prayer constantly and at all times. While we might not have a thousand people to pray for like Malcolm, intentional prayer for those we know is powerful because God responds to our prayers. When prompted and empowered by His Spirit to pray for a specific individual, I found a simple prayer calendar can be a useful tool.

Dividing names into a daily or weekly calendar helps me be faithful to pray. What a beautiful demonstration of love when we remember others in prayer. Today's Our Daily Bread devotional scripture reading is from Philemon chapter 1 verses 1 through 4.

Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother. To Philemon our dear friend and fellow worker. Also to Sophia our sister and Archippus our fellow soldier, and to the church that meets in your home. Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers. Let's pray. Father, help us to be faithful to take time to pray for people we encounter, trusting that you always hear us and will act on our behalf. Thank you, Lord. It's in Jesus' name we pray. Amen. Thanks for listening today. My name is Alisha Reisinger, and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread Ministries.
