9 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; 12 giving thanks to the Father Who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the Kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in Whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
[Editor's comment: I receive this benediction. What a blessing Paul gives to us today. We have been redeemed by the blood of the everlasting covenant procured for us by Jesus at the Cross of Calvary. We have been forgiven of our sins. He gives us joy in the midst of the storm, and tells us not to fear. His Word is power and ever present to make us whole and holy. I want to make it a practice to pray for all who will read Hugh's News each day. Paul prayed for others. What a role model.]
