Practice

Who are those who make up your “cloud of witnesses” (both living and dead)? Take a moment to write two lists: those who encourage you from heaven and those who are encouraging you from the earth.

Pray each day thanking God specifically for those who have gone on but who have made a great impact in your life.

Write five letters this week to five people who are in your living cloud of witnesses. Thank them for their encouragement. Let them know how much you appreciate their faithfulness.
