Thanksgiving and Prayer

Colossians 1

3 d We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 4 e since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of f your love for all the saints; 5 because of the hope g which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel, 6 which has come to you, h as it has also in all the world, and i is bringing forth 1 fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew j the grace of God in truth; 7 as you also learned from k Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is l a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf, 8 who also declared to us your m love in the Spirit.

9 n For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask o that you may be filled with p the knowledge of His will q in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 r that you may walk worthy of the Lord, s fully pleasing Him, t being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the u knowledge of God; 11 v strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, w for all patience and longsuffering x with joy; 12 y giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of z the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13 He has delivered us from a the power of darkness b and 2 conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 c in whom we have redemption 3 through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
