"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4 

 

Growing Up in Prayer

Jun 19, 2016

Ephesians 1:15-23
For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, 16I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him.

We say it a lot, "I'll remember you in my prayers." At best we pray in a way that is glib and passing. At our worst, we totally forget to pray for them even if it would be a dismissive prayer just to say we are praying. When it comes to Growing Up In Christ we all have a lot to practice when it comes to prayer. Not a lot to learn, but rather a lot to practice. Paul full of thanksgiving and prayer in this section and after blessing God's great name with the 7 explosive verbs talking about what God has done for us, he now blesses the saints and reminds them that he is constantly praying for them. How we talk to God matters and if you are like me, you could use a good reminder of the nuts and bolts of prayer. Join us as we worship the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
