Context
Thanksgiving for Response to the Gospel

1:2 We thank God always for all of you as we mention you constantly 1  in our prayers, 1:3 because we recall 2  in the presence of our God and Father 3  your work of faith and labor of love and endurance of hope 4  in our Lord Jesus Christ.

3 tn Or the phrase may connect at the end of the verse: “hope…in the presence of our God and Father.”
