A Passive Prayer

The Kingdom of his Son shall know no end!

​Colossians 1:9-14 ESV

And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may

be filled (passive => God to fill us)

with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, [10]

so as to (result)

walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; [11] being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; [12] giving thanks to the Father, 

who has (prize)

qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. [13] He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,[14]

in whom

(the narrow path of Christ) we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
