6 Reasons to Pray Colossians 1:9 - It's a fantastic Scripture to pray for yourself and others and this 1-minute devotion explains why. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible
Scripture gives us some wonderful verses to pray. 

For example, there's a great prayer to pray for yourself and your loved ones in Colossians 1:9-14 asking God to "give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding."  

Paul explains the purpose of this prayer:

1. So we'll live lives worthy of the Lord - v.10.
    (Matthew 10:37-39).

2. So we'll please Jesus in every way - v.10.
    (Ephesians 5:8-17). 

3. So we'll bear fruit in every good work - v.10. 
    (Ephesians 2:10).

4. So we'll grow in knowledge of God - v.10. 
    (Jeremiah 9:23-24; Proverbs 9:9). 

5. So we'll be strengthened with God's power - v.11. 
    (2 Corinthians 12:9).

6. So we'll have endurance, patience, and thankfulness - v.11-12. 
    (Romans 5:3-5). 

And why do we want to pray for these?
Because God "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." (Colossians 1:13


Wow! If that doesn't knock your socks off, I'm not sure what will.

  2. As a mom to 5 special needs children, I am always pressed for time. For a long while daily devotions were the last thing on my mind. But I love God heart and soul. And I felt empty and tired. He patiently waited for me. I'm not perfect, but trying my best to have a few minutes for praise and worship. I need Him more than ever.
