What We Should REALLY Pray For

Trinity Downtown > Blog > What We Should REALLY Pray For

And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding… Colossians 1:9 ESV

Here’s how you can participate:

– The National Youth Gathering starts today, so please continue asking the Lord to make the event a deeply meaningful experience for the 19 students and 4 adult chaperones from Trinity

– Hear a preview one of this Sunday’s hymn “Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee” that will be sung at the Traditional worship service, and one of the praise songs that will be sung at our Contemporary service

Dear Members and Friends of Trinity Downtown:

One of the markers of a growing relationship with Jesus is that we start spending more time talking to Him, discussing the day ahead and asking that His will be accomplished. However, I must confess I’m often tempted to turn my prayer time into a bullet list of problems that I’d like God to solve for me. I’m eager to deliver to Him the solutions that I’d prefer He implement in my life. There is nothing wrong with these “ground level” requests.

When we look at Scripture, we see a different (and more profound) set of prayer priorities. Paul, in Colossians, starts out his letter to the church in Colossae with a prayer that asks God to fill each of his readers with wisdom and understanding, and asks that they’d walk in a way that is pleasing to Him.

Hmm. I wonder if I should add these requests into my conversations with our gracious God?

This Sunday, we’ll be continuing our summer sermon series focusing on the New Testament book of Colossians. Some of the first century believers in Colossae were apparently being tempted to water down Jesus’ message; to make Him just one of a pantheon of religious thinkers. Paul writes to them to correct this error, and his Spirit-inspired letter is both profound and speaks directly to our own American situation. This Sunday, we’ll be discussing Paul’s prayer for the Colossian congregation, and what it means for our lives.

Come join together with fellow-travelers this Sunday at Trinity Downtown as we continue our study of Colossians. Come learn how placing your distractions, hopes, fears, uncertainties and doubts in the hands of the Lord can lessen our stress load and bring deep transformation in our hearts. Celebrate with us the depth of Jesus’ love for us and find out how you can live a life of significance, filled with meaning.  Discover how following Jesus can help you and your family navigate around the minefields of life. I promise you it will make a tremendous difference in your life.
