A Prayer For Steadfastness
"Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which
you were taught, whether by word or our epistle. Now may our
Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has
loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope
by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good
word and work."
2 Thessalonians 2:15-17
You have loved us with an everlasting love, and beneath us are
Your everlasting arms. You have demonstrated Your love for us
by sending Jesus to die for our sins while we were still sinners.
Through Jesus, we are given eternal comfort and hope by Your
unfailing love, mercy and grace. Lord Jesus, help us to hold fast
to Your truth and holy teachings. Remind us that the traditions
and doctrines we hold on to have been passed down from the
church You established long ago with the early apostles. Holy
Spirit, strengthen us in every good word and work that the
effectiveness of our faith would be lived out in our daily lives to
the glory of God our Father, through Jesus Christ our Savior, in
fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
