Absolute faith, day after day

Through your grace, help me “throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles” me. Let my gaze be steady on you.

Prayers for our first responders, doctors and nurses, and everyone on the front lines today combatting COVID-19… Prayers for our communities, our states, our countries, our leaders, and our world.

Colossians 1:9-14 (NIV)

9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
