SCRIPTURE: Col. 1:9b-12 emphasis on vv.11-12a (AMP) - "  [we pray that you may be] strengthened and invigorated with all power, according to His glorious might, to attain every kind of endurance and patience with joy; 12 giving thanks to the Father

How often do you intercede for others?  Are your prayers ME-focused?  As I mentioned in a previous post, we have an opportunity to be a blessing to others; what blessing is better than to pray for someone else?  Take this time to review your prayer life and see if it all about Me, Myself & I or if you really love others enough to put their needs before your own?  Think of the spiritual growth someone could encounter if we were to pray the things Paul mentions for other Christians and churches?  Keep it simple by starting with just one person, or church TODAY, while it is still called TODAY! 
PRAYER FOCUS: Col. 1:9-12 (VOICE) - "Father, may they clearly know Your will and achieve the height and depth of spiritual wisdom and understanding. 10 May their lives be a credit to You, Lord; and what’s more, may they continue to delight You by doing every good work and growing in the true knowledge that comes from being close to You. 11 Strengthen them with Your infinite power, according to Your glorious might, so that they will have everything they need to hold on and endure hardship patiently and joyfully. 12 Thank You, Father, as You have made us eligible to receive our portion of the inheritance given to all those set apart by the light.
