This month I’ll be praying Colossians 1:9-12, which reads like this in the Holman Christian Standard Bible:
(9) For this reason also, since the day we heard this, we haven’t stopped praying for you. We are asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, (10) so that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God. (11) May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience, with joy (12) giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the saints’ inheritance in the light.
May the Lord fulfill these requests in our lives.
Have you read D.A. Carson’s book on the prayers of Paul – excellent stuff. I think it is called something like “A Call to Spiritual Reformation”.
I haven’t read it yet, but you’re the second person who has recommended it to me so I’ll probably check it out.
