Praying with Paul: 'Held Together in Christ'

Colossians 1:15-20

Dear Father,

We have not seen you. We do not even know what it might mean to see you. But you have shown us Jesus, and because we have seen him, we have seen you.

Thank you for him who is the image of you, the invisible God. Thank you for creating all things through him who is the first-born of all creation.

Help us grasp what it means that everything - things in heaven, things on earth, things visible, things invisible, thrones, dominions, principalities, authorities, all matter and all energy - was created by him who was before all things, and that all these things hold together through him.

How overawed we are! We prostrate our bodies, souls, and spirits before him!

In Jesus' hallowed name I ask. Amen.
