The Role of Praying in Living a Spirit Filled Life
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
Some people really underestimate the power of prayer in helping you live a life full of God’s goodness, a life were your attitude is top notch, and you are producing good fruit character wise. We see constant prayer being made for the Colossian believers, Apostle Paul put it this way, he says that ever since he heard about their faith, that they kept praying for them to have full knowledge of God’s will, and to have spiritual wisdom and understanding. Notice that the wisdom and understanding are called spiritual.
Trust me, those prayers would be answered, and the result is a better understanding of God’s will in Christ, and the availability of supernatural wisdom in discerning truths about Christ. Well, it doesn’t stop there, verse 10 of our key scripture, then goes further to tell us what would happen next. It says that our lives would honor God, and that we would produce every good fruit…good fruit placed within us as a result of salvation.
That’s the power of prayer. So don’t be scared to pray about that bad habit, or to pray about a bad habit you noticed in Someone else, rather than complain or try to use your effort, pray. Keep on praying, and I assure you, you will experience results beyond your imagination.
Thank you Lord for the power available in prayer. Teach me to keep on praying and placing my focus on your strength, amen
