How to Pray for Your Congregation
We see in Paul’s life a faithfulness to pray for those he came to know through his ministry. Not only did he give his life for those he served, but he also poured out his heart in prayer on their behalf.
We find a wonderful sample of Paul’s faithful prayer for the church at Colossae in Colossians 1:9-12:
For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, 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 may 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.
