The Colossians 1 Prayer Challenge

I just love, love, love this prayer from Colossians 1. Sometimes, when you don’t know how to pray for yourself – or when someone else asks to see how he or she may pray for you – it’s easy to be at a loss for words.

I really believe that this excerpt from the first chapter of the book of Colossians says it all. This is a prayer that God will always answer in an an affirmative way. Always! How He answers may be different for each person, but He will always respond with a resounding “Yes!” to the following prayer, offered with a genuine heart of faith:

There really isn’t much more to say about this except “amen”.

My prayer for today – for myself, and also for you – is this passage from Colossians 1:9-11. Let’s agree to pray this every day for thirty days, and see how Gods responds. He may (or may not) change our circumstances, but He will definitely transform our thinking and emotions to better align with His purposes.

Let’s try it and see – who’s with me? Pray it over yourself, over your loved ones, and/or over your friends. Let’s see what happens. 🙂
