Listen to the Bible Recap here.


“And we sent Timothy, our brother and God’s coworker in the gospel of Christ, to establish and exhort you in your faith that no one be moved by these afflictions. For you yourselves know that we are destined for this.”

– 1 Thessalonians 3:2–3


If you are for us, who can stand against us? Nothing can separate us from your love and your grace and your mercy. From your strength and your joy. That we have a joy that supersedes even affliction and suffering, God. So I pray for all those things over anyone walking through affliction right now. I pray for hope, God amidst discouragement and despair, I pray for encouragement.

I pray for building up a faith during these days. For hope that these days will not have the last word. That affliction will not have the last word for those who have faith in Jesus. That sin and evil and suffering and death itself will not have the last word. For those who have faith in Jesus, that you will bring us through affliction. And that our afflictions, our sufferings cannot be compared with the glory that will be revealed in us.

We hold fast to that hope. We pray like we see all over 1 Thessalonians. Come Lord Jesus, come quickly and help us we pray in this world where we are destined for affliction. To endure, patiently endure, to faithfully endure with our eyes fixed on you. God, I pray this over every single person walking through affliction right now, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
