How is your zeal for the people of God? Do you want them to stand in all the will of God? Take Epaphras as an example, and labor fervently for your brothers and sisters in the Lord. His main prayer was likely what Paul wrote about, i.e. that they may put on Christ, and put off every lie. Christ is all. Fulfillment is not in vain Philosophy, Rule keeping, or Worldly success and pleasure, BUT in Christ. Christ-like character is merciful, kind, humble, meek and patient. Pray for specific beloved ones that they might know their privileged standing with God, and put on Christ.
