Great evangelist that he was, he asked for prayer from the other believers. "Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should" (Eph 6:19-20). Paul knew the value of his own prayer, but he also knew the value of having other people pray for him.
For reflection: All preachers, evangelists and missionaries are in need of prayer. For which one am I called to pray today?
Let us pray. Father, I ask your protection for _______. Help them to put on the full armor today. May they proclaim the Gospel without fear, without worry and without doubt. Give them the proper words to say at the right time and the right place. May they truly be your ambassadors.
