New International Version
2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.(A)
Thanksgiving and Prayer
3 I thank my God every time I remember you.(B) 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray(C) with joy 5 because of your partnership(D) in the gospel from the first day(E) until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion(F) until the day of Christ Jesus.(G)
7 It is right(H) for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart(I) and, whether I am in chains(J) or defending(K) and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me.
