Beyond Good Intentions
Today’s Scripture Readings Psalm 115:9-13 | Jeremiah 22:1-23:20 | 2 Thessalonians 1:1-12 | Proverbs 25:11-14
Today’s Scripture Focus: 2 Thessalonians 1
“We constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith. We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you and you in him.” (2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 NIV)
Here is another of Paul’s great prayers. Again, I encourage you to make these prayers a regular part of your prayer life.
Note Paul’s consistency: “we constantly pray for you.” Paul understood the need for prayer–persevering prayer. So often we grow tired and give up. Paul kept on praying for them. His prayer life is an example to us–and a challenge to us.
