Praying for Christians everywhere

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.

Apostle Paul prays on and onto us

How can we thank God enough for you? What joy we have before God because of you! Night and day we pray and pray to see your face and your faith not lacking. Oh, may our God and Father guide us back to you. And may the LORD cause your love to increase and prosper for each other and for all! Oh, how our love abounds for you! May God strengthen your very hearts in holiness and keep you unfettered and free in the Holy Spirit,kept blameless before our God and Father when our LORD Jesus Christ comes with all the saints in whose sure company you surely belong. © 2012, 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13 prayer-a-phrase by Mary Sayler ~~
