2 Thessalonians 3:1-5 (Listen)

Pray for Us

3:1 Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored, as happened among you, and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. And we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command. May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ. (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 449 : My Soul, be on thy Guard Hymnary.org link

1. My soul, be on thy guard; 
Ten thousand foes arise, 
And hosts of sin are pressing hard 
To draw thee from the skies. 

2. Oh, watch and fight and pray, 
The battle ne’er give o’er; 
Renew it boldly ev’ry day 
And help divine implore. 

3. Ne’er think the vict’ry won 
Nor lay thine armor down; 
Thine arduous work will not be done 
Till thou obtain the crown. 

4. Fight on, my soul, till death 
Shall bring thee to thy God; 
He’ll take thee at thy parting breath 
To His divine abode.
