Focus Scripture: Colossians 1:9-14 (NLT) So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.
Holy God, today I pray for my sisters and brothers in Christ, just as the Apostle Paul prayed for the Colossians. I pray that your people will be strengthened with all his glorious power so they will have all the endurance and patience they need. May they be filled with joy, always thanking the Father. He has enabled them to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light. For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
