Thanksgiving and Prayer

I give thanks to my God for every remembrance of you,[a] always praying with joy for all of you in my every prayer, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day(A) until now.(B) I am sure of this, that He who started a good work(C) in you[b] will carry it on to completion(D) until the day of Christ Jesus. It is right(E) for me to think this way about all of you, because I have you in my heart,[c] and you are all partners with me in grace, both in my imprisonment(F) and in the defense(G) and establishment of the gospel. For God is my witness,(H) how deeply I miss all of you(I) with the affection of Christ Jesus. And I pray this: that your love(J) will keep on growing(K) in knowledge and every kind of discernment,(L) 10 so that you can approve the things that are superior(M) and can be pure(N) and blameless(O) in[d] the day of Christ,(P) 11 filled with the fruit(Q) of righteousness(R) that comes through Jesus Christ to the glory(S) and praise of God.
