Verse of the Day Colossians 4:2

Continue steadfastly in prayer, watching in it with thanksgiving, – Colossians 4:2

Verse of the day I Corinthians 13:4-6

Spiritual Thought

This is again a reminder of how prayers should be carried out. Just as Paul wrote to the Philippians in his letter to them, teaching them to accompany prayers in times of uncertainty, with the ingredient of thanksgiving, he says this to the Colossians as well. And this is for our instruction today as well.

The Psalmist says, “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise”. This is the prescribed system to coming to God’s presence.

God always seeks us to appreciate what he has already done for us. We could also thank him for what we ask, not by some blind tradition, but through our faith. If faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen, then it means with faith there is already an assurance. This assurance is then what spurs our thanksgiving, knowing that we are thanking him for what we pray for, because we are sure we have received it. The instruction is therefore to watch and pray, but assisted by the power of thanking God.
