“Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds.”
Paul was imprisoned for proclaiming the gospel and asks that the church at Colossae pray that God would open an opportunity for him to preach the gospel of Christ.
Lord, I’m not imprisoned, but I oftentimes don’t take opportunities that you give me to proclaim the gospel. Please help me to be more bold and eager like Paul. Make me yearn to have more opportunities for preaching and sharing Christ with others. I want that desire to consume me and motivate all that I do. I love You, Lord!
