“For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding” (Colossians 1:9)

Do you hear the things Paul was praying for?  He prays for us to be filled with the knowledge of the Lord’s will and all spiritual wisdom and understanding.  Will you receive what the Lord gives you?  Will you walk in the knowledge and wisdom He imparts?  This is always a good and true question that we should at all times be willing to answer.  The Lord would have you grow in His likeness.

Lord, you know all that is right, good, and needed for me to grow into Your likeness.  You have sent those who would speak Your Word so that I might receive the mercy and grace needed to continue on the path of following You.  You know what I need Lord.  Help me live into the life You have called me live into and for which You died.  Guide me in the Gospel way, giving thanks for the saints who have prayed for me.

Lord Jesus, help me join the communion of saints who at all times and in all places have prayed for those in need.  Lead me, O Lord, in the Gospel way so that I would join as one of the active saints who cares for others as I have been cared for.  You know where that direction is.  Help me to understand that You do know all things and I need to learn how to follow You, now and always.  Amen.
