Quiet Life *1 Thes. 4:9-12

9 Now about your love for one another we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other. 10 And in fact, you do love all of God’s family throughout Macedonia. Yet we urge you, brothers and sisters, to do so more and more, 11 and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, 12 so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.

Lord, help us to love one another more and more. And to lead a quiet life; minding our own business and to work with our hands, just as the Bible says, so that our daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that we would not be dependent on anybody. In Jesus Name. Amen. (1 Thes. 4:9-12 prayer)

Instruction *1 Thes. 4:1-8

As for other matters, brothers and sisters, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living. Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more. 2 For you know what instructions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.
3 It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, 5 not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; 6 and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before. 7 For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. 8 Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.
~~~
Lord, sanctify us. Strengthen us to avoid sexual immorality; that each one of us would learn how to control our own bodies in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know You God; in this matter keep us from wronging others or taking advantage of them. (1 Thes. 4:3-6b prayer)

Supply *1 Thes. 3:10-13

10 Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you again and supply what is lacking in your faith.
11 Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for us to come to you. 12 May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you. 13 May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.

Prayer *Col. 4:2-4

2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3 And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. 4 Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. 5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Lord, God of Israel, teach us how to devote ourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. I pray that You, Lord would open a door for us to proclaim the mystery of Christ, and proclaim it clearly. And that we would be wise in the way we act toward outsiders – making the most of every opportunity. Lord, let our conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that we may know how to answer everyone. (Col. 4:2-4 prayer)

Whatever You Do *Col. 3:18-25

Whatever you do – husband & wife, slave & master, employer & employee do it all – all you do – do it for the Lord God for your reward will be great in heaven.
~~~
18 Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
21 Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.
22 Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. 25 Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.

The Message *Col. 3:15-17

15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Father, may the peace of Christ rule in our hearts, since as members of one body we were called to peace and also to be thankful. May the words of Christ dwell in us richly as we teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in our hearts to You, Father. I pray whatever we do, whether in word or deed, we would do it all in the Name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to You God our Father through Jesus. (Col. 3:15-17 prayer)

Clothing *Col. 3:11-14

In the Kingdom of God there is beautiful, new clothing to be had.
~~~
Therefore Lord God, as Your chosen people, holy and dearly loved, help us to clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. And that we would bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances we have against one another. That we would forgive as You Lord forgave us. And over all these virtues we would have love, which binds them all together in unity. In the Name of Jesus I pray. (Col. 3:12-14 prayer)
~~~
11 Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.
12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
