Paul expressed his thanks to God for his brothers and sisters in Christ. He prays for grace-the underserved favor of Christ to be upon them. He prays for the peace that results as we live our lives for His glory. We must believe the best of our brothers and sisters in Christ and forecast achievement for them.
