we have not ceased to pray for you
and to ask that you may be filled
with the knowledge of His will in all
spiritual wisdom and understanding,
so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord,
to please Him in all respects,bearing fruit in every good work
and increasing in the knowledge of God;
strengthened with all power,
according to His glorious might,
for the attaining of all
steadfastness and patience;
joyously giving thanks to the Father,
who. has. qualified. us.
to share in the
inheritance of the saints in Light."
~ Colossians 1:9-12
