Paul's pattern in his relationship with other believers was to pray for them and to let them know not only that he was but what he prayed for them for as well as what he thanked the Lord for because of them. In doing so he let them know they may have been out of sight but they were not out of his mind. He revealed that while he was in this situation in a difficult circumstance, in prison, he was not dwelling on himself and his troubles but on the Lord and the needs of other believers. In his prayer he also revealed that he prayed for what were his greatest concerns for them. Those concerns and needs centered on their spiritual needs, not their physical. Spiritual growth and maturity by growing in their knowledge of God's word and in knowing God by living by faith in the ongoing relationship with Him increasingly realizing the greatness of who God is and what He has for His people. With such a pattern every believer will do well in putting such petitions and perspective into practice for personal prayer for the time at hand.
