Praying with Paul: 'In Christ, the Fullness of Deity'

Colossians 2:8-9

Dear Father,

May I never be impressed with the philosophy and empty deceit that comes out of human traditions which do not agree with Christ.

Keep me from being enticed by teachings that root their knowledge in the elemental spirits of the universe, the laws of nature, and in scientism, but not in Christ.

Help us to understand what it means that the very fullness of deity dwells in our Lord bodily and that we have come to the fullness of life in him and that he is the head of all rule and authority.

Help us to hold fast to Christ, who is our head, in whose name I pray. Amen.
