Prayer for 2 Thessalonians 3:6

“Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to keep away from every brother who walks irresponsibly and not according to the tradition received from us.”

Praying through 2 Thessalonians 3:6

Heavenly Father, how important it is to be established in the truth. I recognise that there are many times in my life when I have been adversely influenced by gossips or busy-bodies. Help me to be disciplined in my Christian life and refuse to engage in idle chatter which can be so destructive in a church community and so quickly tarnishes the witness of those engaged in it. I pray that I would show grace and love to my brothers and sisters in Christ, but I would not trample on Your grace by ignoring their persistent, blatant disobedience of You. Help them repent from their behavior and get back into fellowship. Help me also to repent of any disobedient behaviour, and help all of us live honourable and fruitful lives, for Your greater praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
