1 Thessalonians 1

Self-communicating God,
as in the congregation of Thessalonica,
your Word still goes out and bears fruit
and the hearers receive it with great joy.

May all your people now be known for the work of faith,
and the labour of love and steadfastness
because of our hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

We pray that your Word may come to us, too,
not only in words,
but with power in the Holy Spirit,
and with full conviction
and Spirit-given joy.

As your chosen people
we turn to You, our God, from idols,
to You, the true and living God.

We wait for Your Son to come from heaven,
for he, whom you raised from the dead
will surely come to rescue us
from the wrath that is coming.
