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, 10 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, 11 being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 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. 13 For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
This week’s Inspirational thoughts have focused on the Apostle Paul’s prayer. He voiced this prayer from prison where he was wrongly accused, cold, and hungry. However, instead of praying for himself, he chose to prayer for others. He prayed, …we have not stopped praying for you. 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way… Colossians 1:9-10
That reminds me of a little prayer I heard long ago that went like this, “In all I think and say and do, I long, O God, to honor You.” That’s what the Apostle Paul is saying, that in our lives we should seek to “Live a life worthy of the Lord”.
Consider praying that little prayer today, “In all I think and say and do, I long, O God, to honor You.”
Think about it…and have a blessed day!
