PRAYER GUIDE, COLOSSIANS 1 PRAYER, 10.07.19
I pray for all God’s people who are faithful followers of Jesus Christ/Yeshua Ha-Mashiach (v.2). I thank You, Lord, for each one of these (v.3). I pray also for those family members & close friends who are not yet followers, that they will become so.
I pray, Father, that You show them Your loving kindness & BLESS each one with peace! (v.2)
Thank-You, Father, for the faith You have placed in Your people (v.4), & I pray that You will increase their love for one another and for all of God’s people. I thank You that our hopes are kept safe for us in heaven, for You are a God Who honours His Word; and what awaits us in heaven has no comparison on this earth. Thank-You, Lord, for enabling us to see the Truth of the good news. (v.5) Thank-You, Holy Father, for Your saving grace, Your wonderful Truth. I lock down and seal this glorious Truth and the hope it gives us all.
I thank-You, Lord, that Your Gospel is spreading all over the world; that it has spread in that same way amongst all those who have ever believed, from the first day we all learned the truth about Your wonderful kindness to us (v.5,6). We thank You, Lord, for the messengers You have used to bring Your Truth to each and every one of us who have received it (v.6,7); we thank-You for faithful servants who continue to do the work of the Kingdom. And we thank You for the work of the Holy Spirit that brings Your Truth alive
in each of us who believe (v.8).
I pray this prayer from Paul’s words over each believer now:
I ask the Lord to fill each one with the knowledge of His will; that He will give you heightened spiritual wisdom & understanding so you may live lives that are worthy of the Lord, pleasing to Him, bearing fruit for the Kingdom in all that you do. May you grow and develop spiritually on a daily basis, being strengthened daily by His power working in you, growing in you patience and steadfastness, filling you with His joy that you also will delight in Him, giving Him the glory and being always and ever so grateful that He has gifted you with the spiritual ability to share in the inheritance of the saints of old (v.9-12); and that you may partake of all that He has promised his people in the kingdom of light. . What a glorious gift we have in Christ, by His Holy Spirit!
Thank-You, Heavenly Father, for how that You have rescued us from the dark power of Satan and brought us into the kingdom of Your dear Son, who forgives our sins and sets us free (v.13,14).
In Jesus/Yeshua’s Holy Name. Amen!
