"Praying with Paul" - 2 Thessalonians 2:13-3:5 - A prayer so that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored!

Tomorrow Stefano will continue in San Lazzaro church the series: "Praying with Paul", in which we are interacting with Paul's prayers in his letters.
For this sermon: "A prayer so that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored!", we'll engage with  2 Thessalonians 2:13-3:5.

To introduce this sermon, we'll ask ourselves: 
How do we encourage someone is down?
How does encouragement relates to mission?
These will be the headings of the sermon:
1. A prayer to stand firm and hold to the apostolic tradition
2. A prayer so that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored
"Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored, as happened among you...
May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.
"  
2 Thessalonians 3:1, 5 (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  
D. A. Carson:  

A Call to Spiritual Reformation:
Priorities from Paul and His Prayers.  

This book is also available in Italian
