…we have continued praying for you, asking God that you will know fully what he wants. We pray that you will also have great wisdom and understanding in spiritual things so that you will live the kind of life that honors and pleases the Lord in every way. You will produce fruit in every good work and grow in the knowledge of God. God will strengthen you with his own great power so that you will not give up when troubles come, but you will be patient. And you will joyfully give thanks to the Father who has made you able to have a share in all that he has prepared for his people in the kingdom of light. Col 1:9-12 NCV
Do you know fully what God wants for your life? Do you live the kind of life that honors and pleases the Lord? Are you producing fruit? Are you growing in the grace and knowledge of God? Are you serving in God's strength? Can others see God at work in your life?
Are you like Christ in every way? What change in your life would please God? Do you have any spiritual goals you are working to achieve? Do you have others who are praying for you as you grow in the Lord?
I believe that asking others to pray for us as we work to mature in our faith and serve God will bring about the kind of change that will please our Lord. I believe that God is working through the prayers of my prayer partners to accomplish changes in my life that I could not even begin to accomplish without their support. I believe this is one reason He has told us to pray for one another.
Do you need to put on love, compassion, forgiveness, humility, mercy, meekness, patience, kindness, thankfulness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness or self-control? Does Satan have a stronghold in any area of your life? Do you need to put off worldliness or sin of any kind? Do you have trouble finding time for God's Word and prayer? Are you serving others? Do you have a relative, friend or neighbor that you want to share the good news of Jesus Christ with?
As you have read I would guess the Holy Spirit has brought to mind a spiritual goal for you. If not, ask Him to identify one area that He would like you to grow in or gain victory in. And then, gain strength for the spiritual battle you face by asking others to pray with you and for you.
As you gain victory give God praise and thanks. Rejoice and share how God is working with someone.
