Colossians 1: 9 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; 12 giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
Dear Lord Almighty, I pray that you will have preeminence in my life, family and community. That you will fill me and my brethren with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so we may walk worthy of You our Savior, fully pleasing you in all our ways, so we may be fruitful in every Good Work, not hindering or being a rock of offence to each other, but being supportive of each other to the fulfilment of your plan and purpose for our lives. Lord increase our knowledge of you so we may be strengthened with might by your Holy Spirit in our inner mind according to your glorious power that works in us. That we will be patient with each other, loving each other as ourselves, not Lording it over each other but respecting and honoring, nurturing and encouraging, treating each other as we would love to be treated, not puffed up, not oppressing, neither discouraging each other from serving you our Lord. That we might genuinely give thanks to you Our Father, who has qualified US all to be partakers of the inheritance of the Saints, those washed by the blood of Jesus Christ. For you have delivered US from the kingdom of darkness and translated us by your love to the kingdom of your dear Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth in whom we have redemption through His death and the shedding of His blood on Calvary’s tree, cleansing all our sins, nailing it to the Cross.
For by Christ were all things created both those in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Christ and for Christ, confirming to me and my brethren that all things must work well for our good. The wicked one been used to bring us to the consciousness that greater is Christ in us than the wicked one buffeting us.
Praise to your Holy Name Oh Lord Our Righteousness!
