Colossians 1:3

Colossians 1:3

We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you.
Colossians 1:3

The Apostle Paul had heard about what was going on in the Colossian church and he was excited about it, so he wrote to encourage them. He told them that he was always praying for them. I like that! How we ought to pray always for each other!

Here Paul says he was always praying for these brothers and sisters even though he never met them. Do you think that he was exaggerating?

It is the Spirit of God, the heart of God, that wants the best for others and prays for others always. God uses our prayers.

When the Lord puts one of your brothers or sisters on your heart, there is that opportunity that God has given you to pray for them. Our example, Paul, said he was always praying for his brothers and sisters in the Colossian church. That is what the body of Christ is all about!

Praying for you,
