Prayer for Colossians 1:7

“You learned this from Epaphras, our much loved fellow slave. He is a faithful minister of the Messiah on your behalf,”

Praying through Colossians 1:7

Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of Epaphras, whose service, prayer, dedication, and faithfulness, demonstrated a life that placed Jesus in His rightful position, and whose desire was the salvation of the lost and the progressive sanctification of his fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. I pray that I may seek to share the good news of the gospel with the unsaved, encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ, pray fervently for the spiritual well-being of others, and develop an attitude of humility of heart toward my co-labourers in the gospel. Give me a teachable spirit, keep me from being offended, and enable me to live in the unity of the faith... in the bond of peace with my fellow-labourers in the gospel. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
