Colossians 1:11-14

Dear Father, in whom there is no darkness at all,

Strengthen me with all power, according to your great might, so that I can both endure and be patient, even having great joy while enduring, always giving thanks to you, my heavenly Father.

Please qualify me to share in the inheritance in the light of your dedicated and holy people.

Thank you for rescuing me from the realm of darkness and putting me safely into the kingdom of Jesus, the dear Son whom you love, and whom I love, through whom I have my redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

In the name of Jesus, our awesome Lord. Amen.
