Devotion – Colossians 4:2

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Colossians 4:2
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.

The word for “devote” here in the Greek is a very big word that I can’t even come close to pronouncing. But it basically means to persevere in. Devote.

Now, think for a second. When looking over your everyday life, could it be said that you “Persevere in” or “devote yourself to” prayer?

Prayer is a form of humbling ourselves. It’s a confession that we are dependent on YHWH. What happens when hard times come in our lives? We get on our knees and pray. Why? Because we know that we can’t make it without Him.

Yet this is the attitude He wants in in our hearts 24/7. Prayer should be an everyday part of our life. We should never need hard times be what brings us to our knees. Hard times come to everyone at one point or another. Yet, they should not be what makes us pray.

Let’s do our best in making prayer an everyday occurrence in our life.

Colossians 4:2
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
