We give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, because your faith is proclaimed in the whole world.
I thank my God always concerning you, for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus;
On this account I also, having heard of the faith, on your part, in the Lord Jesus, and the love which ye show towards all the saints,
For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, cease not praying for you, and asking that ye may be filled with the full knowledge of His will, in all wisdom and spiritual understanding,
We give thanks to God at all times for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;
I thank God, Whom I serve from my forefathers, in a pure conscience, that I have an unceasing remembrance of you in my supplications night and day;
For this cause I bow my knees to the Father,
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you??4 always, in every supplication of mine on behalf of you all, making supplication with joy??5 on account of your fellowship for the Gospel, from the first day until now;
And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in full knowledge and all discernment;
Be anxious for nothing; but, in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God:
Who delivered us out of the dominion of darkness, and translated us into the Kingdom of the Son of His love;
night and day praying exceedingly that we may see your face, and perfect the deficiencies in your faith?
Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God our Father Who loved us and gave us eternal consolation and good hope in grace.
