These are my thoughts.
God can protect us from stumbling but we need to be willing to turn to Him. Thru Christ alone we can stand blameless.
Philemon 4-6 King James Version (KJV)
4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;
6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
Philemon 4-6 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
4 I thank my God, making mention always of you in my prayers, 5 when I hear of the love and faith that you have toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all the saints, 6 so that the fellowship that you have in the faith is fruitful through the knowledge of all good things, which are in you by Jesus Christ.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.
4 We should pray for each other, we as Christians should pray for both our fellow believers and for those who aren’t in the faith yet but we are certainly to pray for those who we serve and fellowship with and this what Paul was doing by praying for him.
5 Paul respected and would have been filled with joy by what he heard. Paul would have praised God that he was doing this. Can this be said about us? Who do we react when we hear this about other believers?
6 We thru Christ should be fruitful. We need to let Him grow in us to make us fruitful. He sometimes will have to cut things out of our lives so we can grow more fruit.
