Day 27 Prayer
Therefore, we don't need to say anything, for they themselves report what kind of reception we had from you: how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead - Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.
1 Thessalonians 1:8 - 10
Lord, Paul gives thanks for those in the Church who turned from idols to serve You, the true and living God. This is exactly what __________ needs to do. Though he/she would likely not admit he/she is serving idols, that's exactly what's happening. Money. Power. Possessions. Fame. Anything other than You! Cause __________ to see these things for what they are - frail and flimsy sources of hope and ultimately not worth of worship. I pray for a time when I will be able to look back on __________'s life and testify that he/she turned from idols to trust in You - the only true God.
