A Prayer Of Paul For All Christians
"And we pray this in order that you may live a life
worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every
way: bearing fruit in in every good work, growing
in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with
all power according to His glorious might so that
you may have great endurance and patience, and
joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has
qualified you to share in the inheritance of the
saints in the kingdom of the light.
For He has rescued us from the dominion of
darkness and brought us into the kingdom of
the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption,
the forgiveness of sins."
Colossians 1: 10-14
This is the prayer of Paul to the Colossians which might as well be his prayer also for all Christians. He admonished Christians to become aware of their glorious light and their responsibility while living in the world. He admonished Christians to live a life worthy of the Lord, doing everything in order to please Him and give glory to His name and bearing fruits in all their actions. He reminded them that Christ rescued them from the dominion of darkness and brought them to the kingdom of light through Christ's atoning death on the cross. He also reminded them that they were being strengthened with all power from on high so that they can live a life of patience and endurance.
