Encouragement and Prayer

Philippians 4:2–9 ESV
I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord. Yes, I ask you also, true companion, help these women, who have labored side by side with me in the gospel together with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life. Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
Phillipians 4:2-9
We see here that Paul is writing about an issue between two Christian Sisters. He doesn’t say what is going on or take sides. He just gets right down to the point and asks them to “agree in the Lord”.
What does that mean for us??
How can we agree in the Lord?
We can also see he asked the church to help these ladies find a solution.
If we see our friends fighting we should step up and try to help them come to a resolution if they can’t work it out themselves.
How can we be the friends to help out?
When should we help out?
