What is the content of your prayers?

You should write down a typical prayer of yours and then compare it to what Paul prayed for the Colossian Church,

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; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light (Colossians 1.9–12).

Look at the content of this apostle’s prayer:

That they might be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
That they might walk worthy of the Lord.
That they might fully please Him.
That they might be fruitful in every good work.
That they might increase in their knowledge of God.
That they might be strengthened with all might.
That all of this might be according to God’s glorious power.
That they might have all patience and longsuffering with joy.
That they might give thanks to the Father.
