This week we focus on the study of Colossians Chapter four. Paul wrote this letter to the people of Colosse to combat errors in the church and to show that believers have everything they need in Christ. I will be sharing with you some selected notes from the Life Application Study Bible (NLT). Enjoy

SCRIPTURE TEXT: “Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.“–Colossians 4 : 2 (NLT) 

Have you ever grown tired of praying for something or someone? Paul says we should “devote” ourselves to prayer and be “alert” in prayer. Our persistence is an expression of our faith that God answers our prayers.

Faith shouldn’t die if the answer comes slowly, for the delay may be God’s way of working His will in our life. When you feel tired of praying, know that God is present, always listening, always answering—maybe not in ways you had hoped, but in ways that He knows are best.   



  1. This is very encouraging! Thank you so much! I am empowered and will continue to wait on the Lord even if the response delays. I know his ears are always inclined to my prayers and even though the Vision may tarry, it will surely come to pass. I will stand on his word which says pray without ceasing! For men/ women always ought to pray and not faint! God bless you so much for these words of encouragement. I am so blessed.
