Colossians 1:9-14

“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” (Colossians 1:9-14, NIV)

    This should give all of us great peace and comfort. We should all be praying in this fashion.

      Thanks, L. Prayers that we find in scripture are capable of giving us peace and comfort. Sometimes, I think we overlook those prayers, even though they are right there in the Bible. J

      And I needed this encouragement from you. Prayers in Holy Scripture are sometimes overlooked when we pray. I’ve been amazed at how many prayers I have found in scripture during the last coupe of years that I really never recognized as prayers.
