praying at the same time for us as well... that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ.... that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak Col. 4:4 NASB
The Apostle Paul asks for prayers that opportunities would open.. that closed hearts would be opened to the life giving message and that followers of Christ would see those open doors and step through.
But he also asks for prayer that the words he would speak, would be clearly spoken. He was willing to speak words after he stepped through the door. Did you hear that, beloved...
When the door is open... are we willing to speak about Jesus? As it is written, "I am not ashamed of the gospel... it is the power of God that brings salvation"
What good is an open door... if your not going to Open Your Mouth!
