To the church in Devonport

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus
by the will of God
and Timothy our brother

To: The holy and faithful believers
in Christ
in Devonport

Grace and peace to you from God our Father!

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ when we pray for you:
because of your faith in Christ Jesus
because of your love for all the saints
because of the hope stored up for you in heaven

We thank God you are part of a growing global movement and you are not alone

We give thanks for those who brought you the gospel and handed it on down the generations.

So we are praying for you that God might fill you with knowledge of His will, in order that you might live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way:
bearing fruit in every work and growing in the knowledge of God
being empowered by His Holy Spirit so you may have great patience and endurance
joyfully giving thanks to the Father who has called you into His kingdom

And as you live for Jesus, don’t forget what the good news is all about!
You have been brought out of darkness into light
You have become members of God’s kingdom
You have been redeemed
Your sins have been forgiven

Grace be with you all,

Paul

(From Colossians 1:1-14)
