Praying with Paul: 'Alive in Christ'

Colossians 2:13-19

Dear Father,

Thank you for redeeming us. You took us out of deadness and gave us life. You made us alive together with Christ. You cancelled the debts that we owed you because of our sinfulness.

You disarmed the powers that work against us, triumphing over them in Christ for our sake.

How gracious and wonderful you are. To you we owe eternal praise.

Help us to withstand anyone who might seek to disqualify us, seeking to bind us to any principle of action at all except faith in Jesus Christ, for he is the head, and he determines how the body will grow.

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