As for other matters, brothers and sisters,1 pray for us2 that the message of the Lord3 may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you.42
And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people,5 for not everyone has faith.
But the Lord is faithful,6 and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.74
We have confidence8 in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we command.
May the Lord direct your hearts9 into God's love and Christ's perseverance.
