Prayer for 1 Thessalonians 5

Prayer and Praise During Advent

Dear heavenly Father, at this time of the year when the Church remembers the first coming of our Lord and Saviour into the world, we want to lift up our hearts and voices in prayer and praise to You, for sending the Lord Jesus Christ into the world to be our Saviour– so that through his blood we may be brought back into a right relationship with Yourself and receive the gift of eternal life – by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

At this time our thoughts are specially drawn in remembrance to the wonderful time, so long ago, when God in His grace sent the eternal Son of His love into the world to become the propitiation for our sins. How we rejoice when we recall that He set aside His glory and great majesty to take on the form of a man and be born into this world as a tiny baby, in such humble circumstances.

Lord in a world that is become more secular, I pray that the people of God who are called by Your name would take time to reflect with awe and wonder on this amazing truth and to prepare our hearts for the time when Jesus Christ will return again in power and great glory at His second Advent..

Purify our hearts we pray and sanctify our lives so they we may serve you in newness of life not only in this special season of Advent but every day of our lives – until You come to take us to be with You forever, in Jesus name we pray,

“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:2)

We pray, that despite the terrible tribulation, when Your justified wrath will be poured out on a Christ rejecting sinful world.. that many would come to faith in the Lord Jesus, and be redeemed out of the terrible consequences of unbelief.

Heavenly Father, what a wonderful message is contained in this beautiful passage of Scripture. Thank You that You caused Paul to teach this glorious truth so clearly and simply, to the dear believers in Thessalonica. Thank You that I am a member of Christ's body, and am not appointed to wrath - because Jesus took all the punishment that I deserve upon Himself - so that I might be forgiven of my sin, and not fall under Your righteous judgement. I pray that as the day for Christ's return approaches, when He will gather His saints - both living and dead, to Himself, that I will ready. Thank You that this day will not come on me like a thief in the night, as it does for the unbeliever - thank You for telling us the end from the beginning. Help me to share this message of comfort and hope with those that are saved and those that are lost in their sin, for Your greater glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
