The two prayers of Colossians therefore have for their object the consummation of the
will of God by means of spiritual wisdom, worthy walk and fruitful life.
One thing we should observe very closely. True prayer never attempts to question the
will of God. In its desires it can only follow along the lines of the will of God, regarding
all else as evil and an abuse of a wonderful privilege. We can say therefore that, among
other features, the prayers of Colossians exemplify the Lord's own attitude throughout
the days of His flesh, when He said: "Thy will be done."
We trust that the survey of the prayers of the Lord's prisoner will have shed some
light upon the question: "What are the purposes of prayer?"
