colossians–day 7

The Apostle Paul’s words in 1:9-11 make up one of the most beautiful prayers in the New Testament:

…asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy…

As I recite these words, I say them to the Lord as a prayer selfishly for my own life! Don’t judge me. 🙂 I include others in that prayer as the Lord brings people to mind. But as I was dwelling on these verses today, I thought, I wish someone prayed this for me continually, as Paul says, “we have not ceased to pray for you…” Seriously? Wow…

Then the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart, “Oh but you DO have someone praying continually for you!” He reminded me of Hebrews 7:25, “[Christ] always lives to make intercession for [us]” and Romans 8:34, “Christ Jesus is the one who died…who indeed is interceding for us.” I am so blessed to know that He, who is called Faithful and True, is interceding for a wretch like me.
