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, 2 and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For not all have faith. 3 But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. 4 And we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command. 5 May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ. (ESV)
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.
