Paul made it a habit to speak his gratitude to those who worked alongside him.  
A similar phrase opens many of his letters:

I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being
reported all over the world
” (Romans 1:8)

       Paul’s letter to the Romans is generally considered his most intensely
theological letter.  Yet it opens and closes with great warmth, revealing an
unexpected affection.  The opening shows this personal touch through
gratitude, and the final chapter displays Paul’s care for the Romans in words of
greetings-personally expressing his heart for more than twenty-five different
people.  Included in the list are ministry leaders (Priscilla, Aquila, 16:3) prisoners
(Andronicus Junia, v 7) and both men and woman all considered fellow workers
in the gospel.  In the fellowship of the gospel, there is much to be thankful for,
much to celebrate, and many co-laborers whom we can encourage with our

For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that
without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers
; (Romans 1:9)
