Praying through 2 Thessalonians 2:1

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word and the truths that it contains. Open my understanding as I watch for the any-day return of Christ to take us to be with Himself. Thank You that members of Your Body are not appointed to wrath, and thank You that You are using Your people to hold back the flood of evil, through the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit. I pray that before Your judgement is finally poured out on a Christ rejecting world and before the unrestrained evil, which will soon saturate the entire earth, on the 'great and terrible Day of the Lord' that many would come to faith in Christ. I ask this in Jesus’ name, AMEN.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,”

Praying through 2 Thessalonians 2:3

Heavenly Father, thank You for telling us the end from the beginning and for telling us what will happen before the great and terrible Day of the Lord. May I resist the urge to look for the Antichrist and rest in the fact that he will not be revealed until the Church has been raptured and the Restrainer of evil has been taken out of the way. Help me to hold fast to the truth and never take my eyes off the Lord Jesus in a world that is on the fast-track to God's punishment. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”

Praying through 2 Thessalonians 2:5

Heavenly Father, thank You that by faith in Christ I am not appointed to wrath because Jesus took the punishment for my sin in His body on the tree. Thank You that You have given us history in advance so that we do not fear as the lost who have no hope of eternal life, but have confidence in Your Word. Thank You that all that You have purposed for us will certainly come to pass and I praise You for the blessed hope I have in Christ. May I be ever watching and waiting expectantly for the return of the Lord Jesus to resurrect His dead and rapture all living believers - for which I praise and thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You that evil continues to be restrained. Thank You that Your plans and purposes for the Church will continue to be carried out, by the Holy Spirit, through the prayers and praises of Your saints in this dispensation of grace. I pray that many would come to faith before the Restrainer of evil removes His hand of protection, and allows unrestrained evil to be unleashed on earth. Use me today, in the forwarding of Your plans, as I offer my life as a living sacrifice of prayer and praise to You, for You alone are worthy. In Jesus' name, I pray, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You for warning us of what is to come and thank You that we are saved by grace and not appointed to wrath - when unrestrained lawlessness will be unleashed, when the Restrainer - the Holy Spirit, is taken out of the way. Thank You for the privilege of being Your witnesses on earth, so that the world may know that Jesus is Lord and that faith in Him brings salvation of the soul and life everlasting, to all who believe. Teach me to be more like You and guide me in the difficult days in which we live. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the ministry and teachings of the apostle Paul, and for this comforting passage of Scripture which reminds us that lawlessness will continue to be restrained by the power of the Holy Spirit, as God's plans and purposes are forwarded through the prayers and praise of the Body of Christ. May the prayer of the righteous be effective, powerful, and continue to restrain the spread of lawlessness throughout the world. Thank You that the day is coming when Satan, sin, death, and hell, will be thrown into the lake of fire, and righteousness will be established forever. May I worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness and work the works of God in every area of my life as I walk in spirit and truth for His greater glory. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
