Therefore, from the day we heard of it, we have not stopped praying for you, asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will in all the wisdom and understanding which the Spirit gives;
so that you may live lives worthy of the Lord and entirely pleasing to him, being fruitful in every good work and multiplying in the full knowledge of God.
We pray that you will be continually strengthened with all the power that comes from his glorious might; so that you will be able to persevere and be patient in any situation, joyfully
giving thanks to the Father for having made you fit to share in the inheritance of his people in the light.
He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.
It is through his Son that we have redemption - that is, our sins have been forgiven.
