Prayer for Colossians 1:29

“I labor for this, striving with His strength that works powerfully in me.”

Praying through Colossians 1:29

Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing ministry of the apostle Paul and for the many truths that You chose to reveal to Your Church through him. Thank You for the indwelling Holy Spirit, Who works mightily in me when I am prepared to submit my life into His hands. Keep me from the futile works of the flesh which can only fail and leave me saying like Paul, "O wretched man that I am, who shall deliver me from this weak body of flesh?" but help me to strive according to the mighty power that works in me, knowing that when I am weak in my own abilities, then Your strength is perfected in me. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
