Praying with Paul: 'God's Will: Perfect Love'

Thursday, July 22, 2021

1 Thessalonians 4:9-12

Dear Father, perfecter of our love,

Don't ever let us disregard you or your Holy Spirit, which you give us. Give us perfect love for our brothers and sisters in Christ. Let this teaching of yours fill our minds. Let this love among us grow more and more, every day and in every way.

May we aspire to live quietly, to mind our own affairs, and to work with our hands or our minds, so that we may be dependent on no one and command the respect of those outside your family. May that respect lead them to listen, to heed, and also to become your children.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
