"Praying with Paul" - 1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:13 - A prayer to increase in love & holiness

Tomorrow Stefano will continue the series:
"Praying with Paul", in which we are interacting with Paul's prayers in his letters.

For this sermon: "A prayer to increase 
in love & holiness", we'll engage with  
1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:13.

To introduce this sermon, we'll ask ourselves:
How do we respond when we face worries that see us powerless? How do we respond when amazing good news reassure us?

These will be the headings of the sermon:
1. A prayer to increase in love for one another and for all.
2. A prayer to be established in blamelessness and in holiness.

"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 Thessalonians 3:11-13 (ESV)

To dig deeper with the themes 
we are engaging with in this series,
Stefano is encouraging the church 
to read and interact with the book of 
Priorities from Paul and His Prayers.

This book is also available in Italian
