Today’s Prayer Challenge: Strength to be Patient & Longsuffering with Joy

“11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness” ~ Colossians 1:11 (KJV)

Dear Lord,

We first and foremost come to You giving You all the praise, glory, and honor as the one and only true and living God. We thank You for salvation — sending Your Son to die on the cross for our sins so that we can have eternal life with You in heaven. Please forgive us of our sins, and we thank You in advance for helping us to overcome our weaknesses and shortcomings.

Lord, we come with a special prayer today thanking You that we have all might through the glorious power of Christ Jesus. Perhaps more importantly, we thank You that “all” might includes not only the strength to conquer but the strength to patiently endure — without losing our joy. For, we know that all things work together according to Your perfect will — after the rain, comes the joyous sun in the morning. 

It is in the magnificent name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we pray. Amen.
