1 Thessalonians 1:9-10

Dear Father,

May our faith serve to call them to wait for your Son from heaven, whom you raised from the dead, Jesus, who delivers us from the wrath that will ultimately come upon an unrepentant world.

Thank you for a love that reaches down and takes from within the world of sinners a people for yourself. Thank you for redeeming us, those sinners, for making us holy through your power, and for saving us for your eternal kingdom.

My God, you are so great, so awesome, so good! I love you, God.

In the name of Jesus I pray and give thanks to you. Amen.
