Encouraged by Timothy

(A)But now that Timothy has come to us from you, and brought us good news of your faith and love, and that you always have good remembrance of us, greatly desiring to see us, (B)as we also to see you— therefore, brethren, in all our affliction and distress (C)we were comforted concerning you by your faith. For now we live, if you (D)stand fast in the Lord.

For what thanks can we render to God for you, for all the joy with which we rejoice for your sake before our God, 10 night and day praying exceedingly that we may see your face (E)and perfect what is lacking in your faith?

Prayer for the Church

11 Now may our God and Father Himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, (F)direct our way to you. 12 And may the Lord make you increase and (G)abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, 13 so that He may establish (H)your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.
