2 Thessalonians 3:1-5
1 In addition, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the word of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you, 2 and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not all have faith. 3 But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen and guard you from the evil one. 4 We have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will continue to do what we command. 5 May the Lord direct your hearts to God’s love and Christ’s endurance.
Here Paul asks people who he has talked a lot about praying for to now pray for him. They have believed the message of Christ because of his preaching and because of the prayers of others. Now they can pray for the message to be believed by others. Confidently he says that he knows they will grow and continue to follow Jesus as they do.
Father, I pray for the message of Christ to be believed in others today. As I think about those I love or will encounter today, would you speak to them?
Who is around me that I could pray for to meet Jesus as Savior today?
