9We have not stopped praying for you since the first day we heard about you. In fact, we always pray that God will show you everything he wants you to do and that you may have all the wisdom and understanding that his Spirit gives.
10Then you will live a life that honors the Lord, and you will always please him by doing good deeds. You will come to know God even better.
11His glorious power will make you patient and strong enough to endure anything, and you will be truly happy.
12I pray that you will be grateful to God for letting you have part in what he has promised his people in the kingdom of light.
13God rescued us from the dark power of Satan and brought us into the kingdom of his dear Son,
14who forgives our sins and sets us free.
