|SCRIPTURE TEXT: “And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike.”–Ephesians 6: 19 (NLT) |
Undiscouraged and undefeated, Paul wrote powerful letters of encouragement from prison. Paul did not ask the Ephesians to pray that his chains would be removed but that he would continue to speak fearlessly for Christ in spite of them.
God can use us in any circumstance to do His will. Even as we pray for a change in our circumstances; we should also pray that God will accomplish His plan through us right where we are. Knowing God’s eternal purpose for us will help us through the difficult times.
