Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word. (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 ESV)
Y el mismo Jesucristo Señor nuestro, y Dios nuestro Padre, el cual nos amó y nos dio consolación eterna y buena esperanza por gracia, conforte vuestros corazones y os confirme en toda buena palabra y obra. (2 Tesalonicenses 2:16-17 Español RVR1995)
Almighty God, our eternally strong, wise and merciful Father in heaven ~ thank you, Lord, for showing us your kindness in so many wonderful and eye-opening ways. Give us a portion of your perfect wisdom as we read and obey your inspired word that is a lamp to lead us. Help everyone who has become lost in the tangled vines of worldliness and discontent, to come home in sincere repentance to your strong arms of comfort. Give all followers of Christ a sense of hope, joy, peace, and comfort while humbly serving our Lord. Extinguish the false light of worldly wisdom that promises hope but delivers misery and death. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
