Praying with Paul: 'Patiently, yet Expectantly'

Colossians 3:3-4

Dear Father,

My God, I know that I have died and that my life is hid with Christ. He holds the outcome of my life wholly in his hands; he is my life.

Grant that I may wait patiently yet expectantly, knowing that when he appears, I will also appear with him in glory.

Father, I thank you for this blessed hope. Let the joy of it fill my life every day as I sojourn here on this earth.

Let me put the things of this world in perspective through the victory that Christ brings.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
