Lent – Day 29 – A Prayer For Knowledge and Wisdom
“For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.” Colossians 1:9-12
Father, today I pray for my dear friends and family, everyone receiving this message today. I pray that You will fill them with the knowledge of You, that they would be aware not only of Your presence but also Your power—Your manifest goodness toward them. I pray that they will know You so deeply in their hearts that no man, no angel or demon could ever persuade them to go after others God’s to serve them, nor to doubt the truth, the power and authority of Your Word.
I pray that You will fill them with spiritual understanding in all matters, that they may live their lives so close to You that they can feel Your breath and the beating of Your heart. I Pray that You will cause their words, their thoughts and their actions to be worthy of You and fully pleasing to You in all things.
Father, I pray that You would make them fruitful in every good work, in counsel, in exhortation, in comfort, in encouragement, in patience and longsuffering, in gentleness and generosity, in helps, in giving, in healings, in teaching, in mending what is torn, in strengthening what is weak, in creativity, in thanksgiving, in praise, in faith and in love.
I pray that they will continually be increasing in the knowledge of You and strengthened with all might in their inner being manifesting outwardly, Your glory, in all patience and longsuffering with great joy.
We give thanks to You, Lord, God, Creator and Sustainer, Healer and Provider, Comforter and Friend. Thank You for qualifying us through the precious blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, to be partakers with Him in His inheritance, giving us a part in the inheritance of all the saints who dwell in the light of the glorious Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Bless each of us today with the overwhelming outpouring of Your Love and Grace in the mighty and matchless name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I thank You, now Lord, for hearing and answering this prayer in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen
