“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison—that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.”
Pray for and look for opportunities to share God’s word with the people around you!
Do you see what Paul prays that God will open a door for, in his contacts with those who don’t know Christ? He asks for prayer “that God may open up to us a door for the word”. God is reminding you today of the power of his word in a person’s life.
Think of how he has used his word in your own life. Never underestimate the power of God’s word when you share it with someone.
God wants you to ask him for opportunities to share it with people. As you pray for those opportunities, be sure that you also make yourself available to God for him to use you in this way when the opportunity does come.
Then keep your Bible handy, because you will probably need it!
