Please Pray this for Me

If you are wondering how you can pray for me, I would covet your prayers along the lines of Colossians 4:2-6 and Ephesians 6:18-20.

1. That I would devote myself to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving.

2. That God would open to me doors for His word, so that I might speak forth the mystery of Christ.

3. That I would not be afraid of suffering for that gospel of which I am an ambassador.

4. That I would speak it clearly and boldly.

5. That I would conduct myself with wisdom toward outsiders, redeeming the time.

6. That my speech would always be with grace, seasoned with salt, so that I will know how I should respond to each person.

Today, I had an opportunity to speak forth the gospel clearly and boldly, and I let it slip by, primarily out of fear, in part out of discretion. It frustrated me, and I was reminded of this passage. Lord, let me never forget that I am an ambassador of the King! That is my vocation, indeed, the vocation of every believer.

SDG, Ezra
