Verse of the day 09/11/2014

Colossians 1:1-11

Again when I read this passage over and over again I realize I in my spirit how all of us as believers should use Paul’s example and keep others in prayer at all times.

Paul said we always give thanks. Not we give thanks but we always give thanks to God and pray for the believers.

He was always in prayer for all the people of God in all of the Churches he visited.
Colossians 1:1-11

1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,

2 To God’s holy people in Colossae, the faithful brothers and sisters[a] in Christ:

Grace and peace to you from God our Father.[b]
Thanksgiving and Prayer

3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel 6 that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. 7 You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant,[c] who is a faithful minister of Christ on our[d] behalf, 8 and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.

9 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,[e] 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,

So heavenly father I ask of you to give me more faith and to help me to focus upon the body of Christ and keep them in prayer.

Praying for the whole body of Christ is my prayer today.

I ask you o’lord to bless all those that have given their hearts to you and that you keep them on the road to faith so that they may endure to the end.

You are faithful forever Lord!

Amen

David W. Aucoin

Quote for my day:
A blessed spirit is a mould ever more and more patient of the bright metal poured into it, a body ever more completely uncovered to the meridian blaze of the spiritual sun.
C.S. Lewis
