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.

Lord, supply all that is lacking in our faith in You. May You increase our love and may it overflow in us. Strengthen our hearts so that we will be blameless and holy in Your presence, God our Father, when our Lord Jesus Christ comes with all His holy ones. (1 Thes. 3:10,12-13 prayer)
