Praying with Paul: 'Reconciled through Christ'

Colossians 1:15-20

Dear Father,

We are Christ's church and he is head over us, head over his body. He is the beginning, the first-born of creation and the first-born from the dead, that in everything he might have the pre-eminence.

How gracious you were and are in your good will toward us that your very fullness should dwell in him and that through him all things should be reconciled to you, things on heaven and things on earth.

Thank you for making peace with us and all your creation by the blood of your Son's cross.

Let us always glory in it and in him!

Thank you, dear God, for the wonderful salvation you have provided. In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
