Praying Through God's Word: 2 Thessalonians

Post  charlescameron on Mon 03 Feb 2014, 4:42 pm

2 Thessalonians 1:1-2:12

Lord, we thank You that Your Son, Jesus, is coming again. For "all those who have believed", "the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ" will be a great Day, the Day of celebration, the Day of our salvation, the Day of "our being gathered together in Him" (2 Thessalonians 2:1 & 1:10). It will also be a Day of judgment for "those who do not know God and do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus" (2 Thessalonians 1:7-8). You speak to us about the future - about salvation and judgment. You're inviting us to have a heart-to-heart talk with You. From Your heart, You speak to us of Your love for us - and "Your desire for us to be saved" (John 3:17 & 2 Peter 3:9). Help us to say, from our hearts, "Yes, Lord. I believe in the Lord Jesus. I trust in Your promise - 'Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved'" (Acts 16:31).

2 Thessalonians 2:13-3:18

"Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in all ways" (2 Thessalonians 3:16). Where does true peace come from? It comes from You, Lord. You are "the Lord of peace." Peace doesn't depend on good things happening to us. It doesn't come to us because we have plenty of the good things of this world. Real peace is Your peace. Help us, Lord, to "be still and know that You are God" (Psalm 46:10).
