Colossians 2:10-12

Dear Father,

Thank you, Father, that we have been joined with Christ in his life, death, and resurrection.

Make us realize that we put off the body of flesh in his circumcision, were buried with him in his baptism, and were raised with him in his resurrection.

Give us the faith to see your hand at work in all this and to see ourselves in what happened to him.

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