Prayer for 2 Thessalonians 1:7

“and [to reward] with rest you who are afflicted, along with us. [This will take place] at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with His powerful angels,”

Heavenly Father, thank You for these reassuring words of comfort from Paul, knowing that the ungodly, who oppress Your children unjustly, will one day be punished.. and that a day of rest and rewards is planned for all who live godly in Christ Jesus, and suffer persecution for righteousness sake. I pray that I may exhibit faith and patient endurance in the difficulties that I face, for Your greater glory... and when reviled by evil men, I pray that I may demonstrate the same God-given grace, the Lord Jesus Christ showed, when He was despised and rejected by men. Thank You that You are a righteous God, and I pray that I am able to rejoice in all my suffering, and to learn the lessons of patience and faith, that You desire to teach me, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
