Pauline Praying in the Thessalonian Correspondence

1 Thess. 1:1: Grace to you and peace.

1 Thess. 1:2–3: We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thess. 3:11–13: Now may our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus, direct our way to you, and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you, so that he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.

1 Thess. 5:23–24: Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirt and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it. 

1 Thess. 5:28: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 

2 Thess. 1:2: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Thess. 1:3: We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing.

2 Thess. 1:11–12: To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. 

2 Thess. 2:16–17: Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.

2 Thess. 3:5: May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ.

2 Thess. 3:16: Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all. 

2 Thess. 3:18: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
