Since the Day We Heard about You

Colossians 1:9: “Since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.”

We have the privilege of praying for our family, friends, and co-workers.

One mother prayed for the future husbands of her daughters since they were babies. When each daughter became engaged, the mother would tell the young man how she had prayed for him for years.

When I pray for others, I often ask God to fill them to overflowing with his wisdom, discernment, knowledge, and understanding.

In our daily activities, we meet people at the post office, the gas station, the beauty shop, the grocery store, our place of employment, and other places. Let’s pray for them.

I sometimes ask people how I can pray for them. They are surprised that someone wants to pray for them and thank me afterward.

Let’s pray for our doctors and dentists. We want good care, don’t we?

Don’t forget our church staff and their families need our prayers every day.

Dear God, help me pray daily for my loved ones. Amen.

Application: Which special people will you pray for this week?
