Most of us don’t see obvious answers to our prayers as often as the New Testament might lead us to expect. While the Bible offers insight into why prayers are sometimes not answered (without ever making prayer into something mechanical), it also gives us examples of prayers God loves to answer.
One of those great examples comes in Paul’s description of his prayer for the Colossians – a church group he had heard about but most of whose members he did not know. I’ve used this powerful prayer many times to pray for our church, other churches, and for individuals.
Listen and enjoy. If you have comments, I’d love to hear from you.
