Pray for Brethren in Need

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you. (2 Thessalonians 3:1)

  • Missionaries need prayer.
  • The apostle Paul experienced danger and hardship as a missionary.
  • He was imprisoned, shipwrecked, and beaten.
  • It was no surprise that his letters contained pleas for prayer.
  • He asked the believers in Thessalonica to pray for success in spreading the gospel.
  • He prayed that God’s Word would run swiftly and be glorified.
  • He prayed that God would deliver him from unreasonable and wicked men (2 Thessalonians 3:2).
  • Paul knew he would need to open his mouth boldly and declare the gospel.
  • Do we know people who need supernatural help as they spread the good news of Christ?
  • Let us remember Paul’s appeal, and pray for our brethren in need.
  • Let us intercede for them before the throne of our powerful God.
  • Let us intercede for others in our prayers.
  • God’s throne is always accessible.
