Colossians 1:9: We have not stopped praying for you

For this reason, since the day we heard about it, we have not stopped praying for you, asking [specifically] that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom [with insight into His purposes], and in understanding [of spiritual things],

Colossians 1:9 AMP

This should not only be something we pray over our own lives every day, but something we pray over one another each and every day.  It is the Holy Spirit who leads and guides us into all truth.  He is the one who releases revelation, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding into our lives.

It is through prayer that the power and the plans of God are released into the earth.  The kingdom of God is advanced on the earth day through the lives and hearts of people.  God chooses to use our prayers to accomplish His plans and His purposes.  He has so created the world that when He desires to move in the earth He will move on a the heart of someone who will be faithful to pray and will lead them to pray forth His will.

There is much that happens when we pray that we don’t fully understand.  But time and time again the Lord tells us in His word to continually seek Him in prayer.  He reveals who He is and how He works through His word and what we find in scripture is that every great move of God and every advancement of His kingdom simply came as a result of persistent unceasing prayer.

May we seek Him daily for wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and revelation.  May we pray for one another and lift one another up in prayer.  As we faithfully seek the Lord, He will be faithful to answer according to His will.  We must remember that God’s plans and purposes are not based upon our time table, but based upon His sovereign will.  He does all things according to His will and His plans and purposes.
