2aWe give thanks to God always for all of you, bmaking mention [of you] in our prayers; 3 constantly bearing in mind your awork of faith and labor of blove and Icsteadfastness of hope IIin our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of dour God and Father, 4 knowing, abrethren beloved by God, b[His] choice of you; 5 for our agospel did not come to you in word only, but also bin power and in the Holy Spirit and with cfull conviction; just as you know dwhat kind of men we Iproved to be among you for your sake. 6 You also became aimitators of us and of the Lord, bhaving received cthe word in much tribulation with the djoy of the Holy Spirit, 7 so that you became an example to all the believers in aMacedonia and in bAchaia. 8 For athe word of the Lord has bsounded forth from you, not only in cMacedonia and dAchaia, but also ein every place your faith toward God has gone forth, so that we have no need to say anything. 9 For they themselves report about us what kind of a Iareception we had IIwith you, and how you bturned to God cfrom IIIidols to serve IVda living and true God, 10 and to await for His Son from Iheaven, whom He braised from the dead, [that is] Jesus, who crescues us from dthe wrath to come.

The Thessalonians are given to understand both how mindful of them Paul was at all times in thanksgiving, and prayer:

1 ¶ Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians [which is] in God the Father and [in] the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace [be] unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; 3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father; 4 Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.

and also how well he was persuaded of the truth and sincerity of their faith, and conversion to God.

5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. 6 And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost: 7 So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia. 8 For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing. 9 For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; 10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, [even] Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
