Colossians 1:9 teaches us what we should be praying for to improve our personal relationship with our Heavenly Father.
Prayer Part 1 Let's look at only verse 9.
1. We should ask to be filled with the knowledge of God's Will. Verse 9. God wants his children to know what His desire for our christian walk. Verse 9 says, " ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will...."
2. We should prayer for Wisdom and Spiritual Understanding. Verse 9 again says, " ask that you may be filled in all Wisdom and Spiritual Understanding." When we study God's Word we need to ask for Wisdom and ask God to help us Understanding His precious Word. God speaks to us with His Word. We learn His promises, we learn about His great Love, we learn our eternal security in Christ Jesus and we learn just how great Almighty God is.
3. We should not only pray for ourselves to be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, but pray for OTHERS. Everyday my wife and I pray for our children and grand children to God in prayer that they will know His Will and that God will give them wisdom and spiritual understanding to follow Him.
Are you praying to know God's will for your life? What about praying for other believers?
