Prayer is a privilege we Christians have when we became adopted children of God. We can come to God in full confidence the day God enabled our hearts to understand and receive the Gospel. Believing in the work of Christ on the cross, God tore the veil from top to bottom, we can now enter the Holy of Holies.
The Holy Spirit teaches us to pray pointing us to Jesus all the time. Jesus Christ is our forever priest in heaven. To learn how to pray let us read about the prayers that the Apostles prayed following the pattern that Jesus gave them.
Let us take a peek and listen to one of the prayers of Apostle Paul, to the faithful brothers and sisters in Colossae.
Prayer for Spiritual Growth (Colossians 1:9-14)
9 For this reason also, since the day we heard this, we haven’t stopped praying for you. We are asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, 10 so that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God. 11 May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience, with joy 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the saints’ inheritance in the light. 13 He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son He loves. 14 We have redemption, the forgiveness of sins, in Him.
