WE give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord
praying always for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus,
of the love which ye have to all the saints; for the hope which is laid

to his glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering with
giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers
of the inheritance of the saints in light.
