Praying with Paul: 'Christ in Us, Hope of Glory'

Colossians 1:24-27

Dear Father,

Help us have the attitude of Paul, who could rejoice in suffering for the sake of your body, the church, seeing his own suffering as an extension of Christ's suffering.

May the members of the body of Christ make your word fully known, the mystery that was hidden for ages and generations but is now made visible to your holy people.

How great among the nations is the wealth imparted to them by the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in us, the hope of glory.

It is in his name that I pray. Amen.
