Spiritual Warfare: 'True Growth Because of Prayer'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, September 7, 2021

So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.
— Colossians 1:9-10 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, please give me the wisdom and understanding as I read Your Word, pray, and work to learn Your ways and Your will for my life. I want to honor and please You and produce lots of good fruit for Your Kingdom as I learn to know You better and better each and every day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
