New International Version
Thanksgiving and Prayer
3 I thank my God every time I remember you.(A) 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray(B) with joy 5 because of your partnership(C) in the gospel from the first day(D) until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion(E) until the day of Christ Jesus.(F)
7 It is right(G) for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart(H) and, whether I am in chains(I) or defending(J) and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me. 8 God can testify(K) how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
