Today’s Prayer Challenge: Being a Comforter & Understanding that We Will Not Always Understand

“2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father and of Christ; 3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” ~ Colossians 2:2 — 3 (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 that You will help us, as the body of believers, to knit our hearts together in love. May we not simply be the recipients of comfort but also the givers of consolation. Further more, Father, may we also take comfort in acknowledging and accepting — not fighting or questioning — your mystical nature. In other words, thank You, Lord, for allowing us to be at peace knowing that we will not always know. All that matters is that You know what it best and that we follow in Your will. 

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