Thanksgiving and Prayer

3 We ought always to thank God for you,2 brothers, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love every one of you has for each other is increasing.3 4 Therefore, among God's churches we boast4 about your perseverance and faith5 in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.6 5 All this is evidence7 that God's judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy8 of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering. 6 God is just:9 He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you10 7 and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven11 in blazing fire12 with his powerful angels.13 8 He will punish14 those who do not know God15 and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.16 9 They will be punished with everlasting destruction17 and shut out from the presence of the Lord18 and from the majesty of his power19 10 on the day20 he comes to be glorified21 in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you.22 11 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you,23 that our God may count you worthy24 of his calling,25 and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose26 of yours and every act prompted by your faith.27 12 We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you,28 and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.a
