40 Prayers for 40 Days Day 7

Week 2—Wednesday
Colossians 1:9-12

Know God’s Will

“… 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. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.”

Paul Is different, I know, but I have to ask this: When you pray for your family, or close friends, or the people of your church, how do you pray? I know I am always asking God to protect them from the enemy. I am always asking God to keep them healthy, or to heal them from an illness or injury. I ask God to direct their paths and to draw them ever closer to him.

Paul prays that God would fill them with the knowledge of his will, that they would be able to discern what God is doing in their lives and be able to see and know what he was doing and where he was leading them. He prays that they would be filled with spiritual wisdom and understanding. That they would know: this is what God wants.

When we pray, let’s begin to pray this for our family, our friends, and those who are part of the Church we call our home! God help us know and do your will.
