Praying with Paul: 'Esteem, Peace, and Help'

1 Thessalonians 5:12-15

Dear Father, patient one,

Give us hearts that gladly show respect for those who labor among us and who lead us and admonish us in the Lord. Fill us with great esteem and deep love for them because of their work in the Lord. May we always be at peace among ourselves.

Keep us from being idle or faint-hearted. May we admonish and encourage those who are. Help us help those who are weak and to be patient with everyone.

Let none of us repay evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
