Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


Why did Paul thank God for the Thessalonian Christians in chapter 1? In chapter 2?


Do I work for the faith, labor in love, and endure in the hope of the Lord Jesus? Do I welcome the message of God and allow it to work effectively in my life?


Dear Lord, I ask that You would grow in me a heart attitude like that of the Thessalonians. Teach me to work in faith, labor in love, and endure in the hope of the Lord Jesus. Open my heart to receive Your message as it truly is and allow it to work effectively in my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries.

  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)
  • Keith Rast
  • Andrea Rodriguez (Willie, Yulieta)


  • Boise Rescue Mission


  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for orphans and children in foster care…

  • that they would come to know the adoptive Father-heart of God
  • that they would be positively influenced by Christian workers
  • that God would bring Christian friends alongside them
  • that they would come to salvation
  • that they would be adopted by godly parents

For there is one God and one intermediary between God and humanity, Christ Jesus, himself human, who gave himself as a ransom for all, revealing God’s purpose at his appointed time. – 1 Timothy 2:5-6 (NET)
