16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, (A)who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good (B)hope through grace, 17 comfort your hearts and (C)establish them in every good work and word.

Pray for Us

Finally, brothers,[a] (D)pray for us, that (E)the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored,[b] as happened among you, and (F)that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For (G)not all have faith. But (H)the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and (I)guard you against (J)the evil one.[c] And (K)we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command. May the Lord (L)direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.
