2 Thessalonians offers an interesting pattern of the dynamic between preaching and prayer. The book delves into a variety of themes that are still timeless today. Yet after teaching section, Paul mentions how he is praying for this church (see 1:11-12, 2:16-17, 3:5, 16, 18). For example, after Paul instructs the church about several expectations he has for them, he prays, â€śAnd the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patient waiting for Christâ€ť (3:5) This is a timeless model for ministry. We are to hear what God calls us to do and then we must beseech Him for divine power to accomplish it in our lives. Itâ€™s almost as if Paul gives to preachers a clear illustrations of what Luke says the apostles did in Acts 6:4â€”gave themselves â€ścontinuously to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.â€ť We would do well to keep this model of ijoining together teaching and prayer.
