Day Five: Pray That I May Proclaim It Clearly

Friday, August 15th, 2014

Colossians 4:2-6 (NIV)

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3 And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. 4 Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. 5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.”

Reflection:

We are called to be watchmen. This placement on the walls is our place as His children, as Christians. Paul talks here in Colossians about the proclamation of the Gospel in words and in the whole of life. This proclaiming of the Gospel, both with words and without, flows from a life of prayer. Paul urges his audience to devote themselves to prayer with an attitude of watchfulness and thankfulness. They are to pray that God would open doors and that the Gospel message may go out clearly.

Paul’s words are for us too. The more we pray like this, the more thankful and joyful we will become, too. Thankful and joyful for the salvation that is ours, this message we have received. And also thankful and joyful about what God is doing now and what He is going to do.

Let’s pray in this way for all the Agape Churches, that God may open a door for the Gospel to go out and that we may proclaim it clearly. Let’s also ask for a continual transformation of hearts that as we continue to pray and then live this prayer out, we will become more thankful and joyful.
