I Say a Little Prayer
I vaguely remember seeing something years ago along the lines of "What Christians say" translated to "What Christians mean". One that I remember, probably because I found it particularly painful was saying "I'll pray for you" actually meaning nothing. I am sorry that that is often true of some of us and probably at least sometimes true for all of us. It clearly was not true of Paul. In our first week in Colossians we saw that he gave thanks to God for the faithful believers there but now he not only tells them he prays for them but reveals the contents of his prayers on their behalf. I find it most instructive. Hope you will also as we look at it together this week.
