Colossians 1:9-14 Since we first heard about you, we’ve been praying and asking God to fill you with spiritual wisdom, insight, and understanding so you may walk in a way that’s worthy and pleasing to the Lord – bearing the fruit of good work and growing in knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power according to God’s glorious might. May you endure with patience and joy, giving thanks to our Father, Who has qualified and enabled you to share with the saints – the inheritance of God’s holy people who live in The Light. May our Father rescue you from the power of darkness and transport you into the Kingdom of the Son Who Is Loved, Who loves you, forgives sin and redeems. ©2015, Mary Harwell Sayler prayer-a-phrased today’s reading in Colossians, using a variety of translations found on Bible Gatewa y.
