Prayer for 2 Thessalonians 1:5

“It is a clear evidence of God's righteous judgment that you will be counted worthy of God's kingdom, for which you also are suffering,”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the words of encouragement that are found in Your word. Lord there are times that I consider that the bad things that happen to me are because You are angry with me.. and yet I come to understand that just as Christ suffered for righteousness sake, I too am identified with Him, in His suffering, during my sojourn on earth. Help me to see more clearly that by patiently enduring the suffering, is honouring to Your name, and helps to equip me for my role in the coming kingdom of God. Give me the mind of Christ, I pray, and teach me to endure suffering with patience and humility - until that glorious day when You come in the clouds to take us to be with Yourself, forever. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
