My Prayer

Dearest Father, I know that Jesus is the visible image of you. He existed before anything was created and made everything that is seen and unseen. He holds all things together by the power of his word. The beauty of the whole universe praises him for who he is and what he has done. I praise him too. Amen.

Colossians 1:15-17 (New Living Translation)
Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,
for through him God created everything
in the heavenly realms and on earth.
He made the things we can see
and the things we can’t see—
such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.
Everything was created through him and for him.
He existed before anything else,
and he holds all creation together.
