1 Thessalonians 1 Prayer Life

How is your prayer life today? Is it full of needs that are keeping you from being focused on the needs of others? Do your prayers sound pious but in fact are unworthy to fit into the palace of heaven? Are you pure as you pray or is there some nagging sin that keeps your fellowship with God just on the surface level? These are questions it seems that need answers otherwise our words are like balloons that are floating into the clouds but not to heaven. 

Paul loves each church he has ministered to and the Thessalonians church has a special place in his heart. Listen to his prayer: “We know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, in that our gospel did not come to you merely in words, but in power and in the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction.”[I Thess 1:4] His heart was overjoyed because, like him, they had been chosen before the foundation of the world to be God’s special treasure. It is therefore, fitting that Paul and his companions praying with him,pray for these precious saints’ work produced by faith and labor motivated by love and endurance is rewarded by the Father and Jesus Christ. 

So how about you and I today? How is our prayer life?
