“We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,”
Intercessory prayer cannot be overvalued.
Paul knew how important it is that we make praying for others a priority in our lives.
He prayed purposefully.
“For this cause…”
He prayed immediately.
“…since the day we heard it…”
He prayed consistently.
“…do not cease to pray for you …”
How often do you pray for others?
In the first chapter of the Book of Colossians, the Apostle Paul pinned down a recipe for how we can pray for others.
“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:”
Pray for them...
…to seek the Lord and His will. – v.9
…to walk with the Lord. – v. 10
…to be fruitful. – v. 10
