For this reason

“For this reason we also, from the day we heard of it, have not ceased to pray and make [special] request for you, [asking] that you may be filled with the full (deep and clear) knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom [in comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God] and in understanding and discernment of spiritual things–”‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:9‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

The deeper things of the Lord are only released into the earth through faithful intercession. God’s will and the advancement of His kingdom do not happen by accident. When the Lord finds someone who is obedient to pray and pray faithfully daily, He will begin to pour out the desires of His heart into that person. As that person is led by the Holy Spirit they will pray forth those things into the earth. 

The apostle Paul who wrote this epistle was a man of deep prayer. He understood the challenges that faced believers and understood it was only by the grace and power of God that God’s will would be accomplished. Let us be willing to pray one for another faithfully and be the house of prayer God is calling us to be. He is simply looking for those who would be obedient and faithful. Be willing to be a wise stewards and walk in obedience.
