2 Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart. 3 Pray for us, too, that God will give us many opportunities to speak about his mysterious plan concerning Christ. That is why I am here in chains.
4 Pray that I will proclaim this message as clearly as I should.
5 Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.
Be devoted to prayer. God’s work on people is INFINITELY more effective and efficient than any work you do for people.
Pray for the workers. The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
Live wisely with those who still do not believe; making the most of every opportunity. Get ready at all times so that you will be ready to do good to people, and also to introduce them to God’s love for them, when the opportunity arises. Always use helpful words, encouraging words, words that give hope and a bright future, because with God, all things are possible!
“Honor God and make disciples.”
