HOW TO PRAY

October 26

Between Paul’s teaching in 2:1-12 and his encouragements in 3:1-15 he prays for the Thessalonians. He prays for their encouragement and strength. He prays to the first two persons of the trinity and thereby shows their equality. Paul prays for God to comfort and encourage them because of the false teaching they had been enduring and the anxiety it had caused, plus they needed God’s grace to enable them to stand firm so they could continue to do all to the glory of the Lord as they continued to share the Gospel. This is the kind of prayers we all need to pray. Look at Paul’s prayers in the books he writes and begin to pray them for the people close to you and then for all believers also.

2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word.
