Walk with Jesus: Part One

“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy.”

Colossians 1:9-11 ESV

In the first part of this verse it mentions not ceasing to pray. What does it mean to prayer? Do you believe in the power of prayer? I believe prayer 🙏🏼 works. I’m not sure if I fully understand how it works, but I know that prayers are answered. Maybe not the way we would like, but they are answered.

Pray means to talk to God. To give thanks or to ask for something. According to Wikipedia. Org, The Catholic Church believes there are four types of prayer 🙏🏼.

  • Prayer of Adoration/Blessing: Praise God for who He is and give glory and honor to Him.
  • Prayer of Contrition/Repentance: Showing remorse for sin, asking forgiveness and making a resolution to not sin again.
  • Prayer of Thanksgiving /Gratitude: Thank God for what He has done and what He has given you.
  • Prayer of Supplication/Petition/Intercession: Requesting God to fulfill a need, give you the desire of your heart ❤️ . It is not to demand but to plead on His kindness to provide for our needs.
1Timothy 2:1 NHEB

Will discuss each section of these verses, over the course of the week. Giving my opinion on what is meant and what is meant by Walk with Jesus. Stay tuned for more updates regarding Colossians 1:9-11.
