Praying with Paul: 'Caught Up and Comforted'

Tuesday, July 23, 2024

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

Dear Father, who lifts our spirits,

According to your teaching, we look for the Lord himself to descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel's call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God.

We firmly believe that the dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we, they and us, will be with the Lord and with you forever.

Guide us to comfort and console one another with these words. Help us remember that our faith is the victory that overcomes the failure, sin, sickness, and death of this world!

In the name of our conquering and returning Savior. Amen.
