…since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives. – Colossians 1:9
Holy Lord, we all need You! We all need prayer. We all need to have You continually fill us – each and every one of us – with the knowledge of Your will. We need You to open us up fully – open our minds, our hearts, our ears, our thinking, our perceiving, our speaking, our acting – to receive and obediently live out all the spiritual wisdom and understanding that You desire to pour into us. All the spiritual wisdom and understanding by which You empower us to grow into the likeness of our Lord Jesus Christ with ever-increasing glory.
Holy Lord, let each of us be tender and merciful towards our brothers and sisters in Jesus whenever we see an area in which growth is needed. Let us be persistent in prayer, faithful in love, giving of encouragement and filled with grace when we need to correct (If that’s Your call on us!). Holy Lord, let each of us be the Body of Christ to each other as we love, support, encourage, teach and correct our brothers and sisters, Your children, so that all of us may grow in the knowledge of Your will and in all spiritual wisdom and understanding.
Holy Lord, continually correct me, teach me, keep me growing more and more fully in the knowledge of Your will. Help me to always seek Your heart, Your mind and Your ways so that I may grow in all spiritual wisdom and understanding. Holy Lord, continually grow me and offer through me to others the love, grace and truth of Jesus. Transform me and use me to be Your light and Your voice, Your mercy and compassion to those who believe and follow You now – so that they may know You better. And, Holy Lord, let me be Your light and Your voice, Your mercy and compassion to those who are not yet believers so that they may know You too. And, then, together with all of Your children, we may grow in the knowledge of Your will and in all spiritual wisdom and understanding as we get to know You better.
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. – Ephesians 1:17-19
Oh! Our God loves us so very much! Our God has so much to give us and fill us with through His Spirit and His Word, His eternal hope and His incomparably great power!
Let us each never stop praying for others and for ourselves, asking our Holy Lord to fill us with the full knowledge of His good and perfect will and with all spiritual wisdom, understanding and revelation. Let us never stop praying that the eyes of our hearts will be enlightened so we may know the beauty and power of our Lord Jesus in intense and incredible ways. Let us never stop praying that each one of us will be continually, increasingly transformed into the likeness of Jesus! Amen and amen!
