So ever since we first heard about you we have kept on praying and asking God to help you understand what He wants you to do; asking Him to make you wise about spiritual things. (Colossians 1:9 TLB)
O my precious God, ever since we first heard about Your people I have kept on praying for them and asking You, O God, to help them to understand what You want them to do. I ask You to make them wise about spiritual things; and I ask that they will live always pleasing to God and to the Lord and honour Him, so that they will always be doing good, kind things for others, while all the time they are learning to know You better and better.
I continue praying, too, that they will be filled with Your mighty, glorious strength so that they can keep going no matter what happens – always being full of joy in the Lord, and always being thankful to the Father who has made them fit to share all the wonderful things that belong to those who live in the Kingdom of Light. For You have rescued them out of the darkness and gloom of Satan’s kingdom and brought them into the Kingdom of Your precious Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Today, let Your people be in a place of glorious gladness and celebration in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. Continually, thanking God, for delivering us from gloomy introspection. For He has taken us out of the control of the dominion of darkness, and He has transferred us into His Kingdom into our Father’s perfect and marvellous love. How grateful and thankful we are to God our Father, His precious Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God; we bow before Him with praise, thanksgiving, adoration, and love for all He has done for us now and forever more. Amen.
