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. —Colossians 4:3-4

            Can I pray this for someone today? Who am I praying for that a door would open for them to share the Word of God with someone or a group of people? Not only pray for them that a door of opportunity would open, but when it does that they would speak the message clearly?

            When I think of what is being said here I think about Matthew 9:35-38 and Luke 10:2 where Jesus speaks about the harvest. He tells us to ask Him to send our workers into His harvest. For what purpose would they be sent? They would be sent to speak the Word clearly to the lost that they could be saved (Romans 10:13-15). Again, Paul said, “that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.”   May this be the case with us also.

            So let us pray for open doors to share His message clearly as we ought to.   Let us pray this for other followers of Jesus and also for ourselves.

Dear Father may You open doors for us today to share Your message clearly with those who do not know You that they could come to know You. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. So be it!
