Prayer Challenge Twenty-Three

Devotional: “We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing.” ~ 2 Thessalonians 1:3, ESV.

Challenge: Giving Thanks… Just as Timothy Keller has a “framework for prayer” D. A. Carson has one as well. Carson looks to Apostle Paul’s prayer to the Thessalonians for his model. His gives two main points: the first is “Thankfulness for Signs of Grace”. Paul gives thanks for his readers as their “faith is growing”, their “love is increasing”, and they are “persevering under trail”. What we give thanks for to God shows what or whom we hold most dear. Who are you thankful for? Who are you walking alongside in their Christian journey? Pray for them and pray with them, in the good times and the bad.
