Good morning.

When last did you pray for someone - your spouse, family member or friend? I (Mike) mean really pray for them. One of the greatest things we can do is lift a person up in prayer. A great way to do this is to speak Scripture on his or her behalf.

Mike's friend Paul wrote, "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, 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." (Colossians 1:9‭-‬10)

This portion of scripture is a wonderful example of what to pray as we bring loved ones before God’s throne.

• Paul asked for the believers to understand God’s will/plan for their lives.

• Paul prayed that the believers in Colossae would conduct themselves in a manner worthy of Christ, bearing spiritual fruit. (See Galatians 5:22-23).

When we begin to pray as Paul does here, our intercessions will change, and so will we.

Enjoy a wonderful day.


Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
