Prayer for 1 Thessalonians 5:11

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up as you are already doing.”

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.
