Prayer Challenge Twenty-Four

Devotional: “This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are also suffering.” ~ 2 Thessalonians 1:5, ESV.

Challenge: Steadfast Endurance… D. A. Carson’s second part of his framework on prayer is “Confidence in the Prospect of Vindication”. In Paul’s prayer to the Thessalonians the Apostle is not only referring to the believers’ endurance in the face of persecution, but also in their daily living in faith of the eternal promise of Heaven with Christ Jesus. Are we praying with this promise in mind? Are we praying for others to join us in this blessed and eternal assurance?
