We must be like newborn babes,
always thirsty for spiritual milk,
so that we may grow up to be saved.
New Testament Reading - That you may be made worthy
3Dear brothers, giving thanks to God for you is not only the right thing to do, but it is our duty to God because of the really wonderful way your faith has grown and because of your growing love for each other. 4We are happy to tell other churches about your patience and complete faith in God, in spite of all the crushing troubles and hardships you are going through.
5This is only one example of the fair, just way God does things, for he is using your sufferings to make you ready for his Kingdom.. . . . . 2 Thessalonians 1:3-5
Pray for 5 people on your heart ending with the prayer below.
We pray for… those in need:
those who suffer;
the lonely; the unloved;
those who grieve; and those who care for them…
Comfort and heal, merciful Lord,
all who are in sorrow, need, sickness, or any other trouble.
Give them a firm trust in your goodness;
help those who minister to them;
and bring us all into the joy of your salvation.
Father, hear our prayer,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
