As I was reading in Colossians, I thought “wbat powerful prayers these words are!” So I decided to craft a Word Prayer out of Colossians. Below is what I have done with Chapter One. What powerful words to speak over yourself and others today! This is taken from the Passion Translation, so enjoy the beautiful words and the power of His Word to transform YOUR LIFE!
Father, my heart overflows with thanksgiving for who you are and who you are to me. How You love me, how You value me and call me Your own! I receive with gladness and joy the riches of Your kind favor and heavenly peace that You have released into my realm of influence and into my heart through my precious Lord Jesus, the Anointed One!
Father let my devoted life of faith and love arise within me more and more as I access all the treasures of my inheritance that is stored up in the heavenly realm. I know and acknowledge that the revelation of the true gospel is as real today as the day I first heard of Your glorious hope. I can say boldly and confidently that I believe in the Truth of the Gospel!
Father, my joy is full at the knowledge that the wonderful message of the Gospel is being spread everywhere! It is powerfully changing hearts throughout the earth, just like it changed me! Let every believer of this good news bear the fruit of eternal life as they experience the reality of Your great GRACE!
Father Let me and all your holy believers discover the many wonderful ways to love those around us. Even as limitless as Your ability to love us! Help us to discover this wonderful ability within our hearts and minds. O Holy Spirit empower me to demonstrate the Father’s heart today in the world!
Father let me receive the perfect knowledge of Your pleasure over my life today. I believe that this knowledge makes me a reservoir of every kind of wisdom and spiritual understanding. You are so GOOD, Father!
Let me walk in the ways of true righteousness that I know is most pleasing to You in every good thing I do in the earth today Father. I believe and expect to become a fruit-bearing branch, as I yield to Your life in me and maturing in the rich experience of knowing You in all Your fullness!
Father let me be energized today with all Your explosive power from the realm of Your magnificent glory, that fills me always with great hope! My heart can soar with joyful gratitude when I think of how You have made me worthy to receive the glorious inheritance that is freely given to me by living in Your unapproachable Light!
Father, I am ever-grateful that You have rescued me completely from the tyrannical rule of darkness and have translated me into the Kingdom realm of Your Beloved Son, Yeshua! For I believe in Jesus, who in Him, my sins are canceled, and I have the release of redemption through His very blood! Hallelujah!
O Lord Jesus, You are the divine portrait, the true likeness of the invisible God, and You are the First-born of all creation! Through You, Lord Jesus, everything was created, both in the heavenly realm and on the earth, all that is seen and all that is unseen. You are Lord over every seat of power, realm of government, principality, and authority–it was all created through You and for Your divine purpose! You O Lord, existed before anything was made, and now everything finds completion in YOU! God, You are AWESOME!
O Lord Jesus, I believe that You are the Head of Your body, which is the church. And since You have ever been even from the beginning of time and You are the firstborn heir of the resurrection, You are the Most Exalted One. You hold first place in everything! Father, You are satisfied to have all Your fullness dwelling in Yeshua. And by the blood of His cross, everything in heaven and earth is brought back to YOU––back to its original intent, restored to innocence again! God, You are AWESOME!
Father, even though I was once distant from You, living in the shadows of my evil thoughts and actions, You have so graciously reconnected me back to You. You have released Your supernatural peace to me through the sacrifice of Your own body, Lord Jesus, as the sin payment on my behalf! Just so I can dwell in Your wonderful presence. What a gift! Thank You, Lord!
And now, Father, there is nothing between You and me! For I know that You see me as holy, flawless, and restored! And I know that if I continue to advance in faith, I am assured of a firm foundation to grow upon. I shall never be shaken from the hope of the Gospel I believe in. And this glorious news I shall preach all over the world!
Father, I can even celebrate the sorrow I have experienced on Your behalf; These hard times, Lord, helps me to discover what lacks in my understanding of the sufferings that Jesus Christ experienced for me, His Holy Church. I know Father, that this the very reason You have made me a minister of the Gospel by Your authority and I am a servant to Your body. Father let me be fully equipped to fulfill my purpose; that no plan in my book is stopped, in Jesus’ Name.
Father, I am so grateful that I can and am experiencing Christ living and embedded in me! How the saints of old would have loved to live their lives this way. So much more the reason O God, I should not waste a moment! You are a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for me and all Your people. And I know Father, You want everyone to know it! So, I will tell them today!
Jesus Christ is my message! I will preach to awaken hearts and bring every person into the full understanding of Truth. It is now my inspiration and passion in this ministry that I labor with tireless intensity. With Your power flowing through me, Lord, to present to every believer the revelation of being Your perfect one in Jesus Christ. God, You are AWESOME!
