Praying from Colossians 1:21 relating to Alienation, Enmity, Redemption
Dear Lord, I come before you humbly and acknowledge that in the past, I was alienated from you and an enemy in my mind through my evil deeds. I ask for your forgiveness and mercy. Please help me to turn away from my past ways and to walk in your light. May my mind be renewed and transformed by your love and grace. Thank you for your unfailing love and for the gift of salvation through your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Verse: You, being in past times alienated and enemies in your mind in your evil deeds,
This is a Command. The verse is telling the reader that they were once alienated and enemies in their mind due to their evil deeds. It is not a promise, but rather a statement of fact.
