This past weekend at Eastbrook Church, I continued our series “Power in Prayer: Learning to Pray with St. Paul.” After looking at Ephesians 3:14-21 on praying our way into God’s power and love, this week I looked at how prayer shapes our souls from Colossians 1:9-14.
You can watch my message from this past weekend and follow along with the message outline below. You can also engage with the entire series here or download the Eastbrook mobile app for even more opportunities for involvement. Each weekend I am also providing some resources for prayer related to the passage or theme of the week.
Resources for prayer
Our life of prayer is fueled by accurate knowledge of God’s will for believers. Read through these verses and use them as material in your prayer life, both this week and in the future:
- Psalm 143:10
- Romans 12:1-2
- Ephesians 5:15-17
- Ephesians 5:18-6:9
- 1 Thessalonians 4:3
- 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Paul’s example of praying regularly for others is inspiring. Join in praying for others more regularly through the monthly “Eastbrook Prays” guide, or joining our morning prayer gatherings each weekday (Mon-Fri), 6:00-6:45 AM, in Holy Grounds.
“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you.”
Shaped by Praying Regularly for Others (Colossians 1:9)
Shaped by Praying for Knowledge of God’s Will (Colossians 1:9b)
Shaped by Praying to Live Worthy of the Lord (Colossians 1:10-14)
