"Praying with Paul" - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-28 - A prayer to persevere in trusting God's faithfulness

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 persevere in trusting God's faithfulness", we'll engage with 1 Thessalonians 5:16-28.

To introduce this sermon, we'll ask ourselves: Is perseverance a virtue per se,
or it is meaningful only when we are certain to succeed? Who can give us that certainty?

These will be the headings of the sermon:
1. A prayer to grow in perseverance.
2. A prayer to grow in trusting in God's faithfulness.

"Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit 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. 
Brothers, pray for us."
1 Thessalonians 5:23-25(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
