And may the Lord make you to increase and excel and overflow in love for one another and for all people, just as we also do for you,

So that He may strengthen and confirm and establish your hearts faultlessly pure and unblamable in holiness in the sight of our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) with all His saints (the holy and glorified people of God)! Amen, (so be it)!

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (Amplified Bible)

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud cry of summons, with the shout of an archangel, and with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first.

Then we, the living ones who remain [on the earth], shall simultaneously be caught up along with [the resurrected dead] in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so always (through the eternity of the eternities) we shall be with the Lord!

Therefore comfort and encourage one another with these words.

VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Pray most earnestly

"[And we] continue to pray especially and with most intense earnestness night and day"

Earnestly is exceedingly where 3 Greek words used meaning "over", "superabundant", "superior", "excessive", "violently", "preeminence"

There's a prayer that exceeds and is over and above, exceedingly and superabundant excessiveness in praying but still you can pray it.

I anticipated the dawning of the morning and cried [in childlike prayer]; I hoped in Your word.
