Praying with Paul: 'Unceasing Prayer'

Tuesday, December 27, 2022

Colossians 4:2-6

Dear Father, who answers our prayers,

Help me to be steadfast in my praying to you, even to stay awake that I may pray!

Fill my life with thanksgiving to you.

O God, I pray for all your servants everywhere that you may open a door for us to proclaim your Word, to declare the now-public secret - Christ crucified, glorified, and coming - and to make the message clear, as we ought to speak.

In the name of Jesus I ask you to fill our lives with your holy life and to claim all our motives and deeds as your own. Amen.
