Colossians 1:9 (NLT)
9 So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding.

Here we find the apostle stating his prayers for the Colossians that they may understand God�s will and the knowledge they have received.

In an interview shortly before his death, Dallas Willard, a philosophy professor who wrote widely on spiritual formation in the church, was asked about the challenges facing the church. Dr. Willard spent much of his life addressing the problem of why the church isn't raising up more people who look and act like Jesus. At the end of that two hour interview, Willard was asked this pointed question: "When you look at how off track the church is, do you ever just throw up your hands in despair?"

Willard smiled and said, "Never."

"But how can you not?" the interviewer asked.

"Because," he said, "I know Christ is the head of his church and he knows what he's doing. [Skye Jethani, "Vampire Christianity,"]

Such is the case for prayer. We don�t always understand or have complete knowledge of what we are to do, but we can be certain Christ knows. Therefore pray for one another and for your own concerns that Christ may give you and others understanding.
