5/21/17 Be Prayer Warriors

“Be diligent in your prayers, and pray from your heart, giving thanks to God for all of His blessings.  Pray for us, your brothers and sisters who are spreading Jesus’ message all over the world and are suffering for it.  Pray that God would open up a way for us to continue in this work for Him, to keep going to places where Jesus is not yet known, so that we can tell people about Him and draw them to Him for their salvation.  I have been graciously given the liberty to speak freely to whoever will hear me here in Rome, where I am a prisoner.  But I am not free to leave the city and continue spreading Jesus’ message to all the world, which is my heart’s desire.  Pray that God would grant you wisdom in how to live among those who do not believe and who hate those of us who do believe.  Use the time you have on this earth wisely, and do not waste a minute of it.  Do the work that God has given you to do diligently, with joy and love in your hearts.  Learn to control your tongue, so that the words you speak are spoken from a loving heart, but wisely measured to the person and the situation, spoken sensibly, concisely, and effectively.”
