Jeremiah 14:11-16:15;  1 Thessalonians 2:10-3:13;  Psalm 80:1-19;  Proverbs 25:1-5

“Now may our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way to you, and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you, so that he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.”

1 Thessalonians 3:11-13

Paul’s prayer for the believers at Thessanolica is my prayer for you:

That you may know the fullest depth

of God’s love for you;

that despite your wayward, sinful ways

your belief in His Son Jesus Christ

bridges the gap,

His love pours forth,

His righteousness becomes yours.

My prayer is that whatever

you are dealing with right now,

that you may know that our wise,

omnipotent God

who is as near to you as your breath,

who anchors your todays and tomorrows

in Him

will not let you drift out of His reach.

My prayer is that your love for the Lord will know

no bounds;

that it will spill over onto others

igniting in them a hunger and thirst

for true love and peace,

pushing the question from their lips,

“Why are you so different?”

I pray that a growing faith in Him

will cast aside all doubts and fears,

that His peace and joy

will inform your heart and mind,

directing all your ways.

I pray in confidence,

knowing that God hears

and answers prayer.

I leave you, my dear friend,

in His Hands

today.

In Jesus’ name, I pray.

Amen.
