Ephesians 6:19-20 – Praying to Boldly Proclaim the Gospel

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 54:1‐57:13, Ephesians 6:1‐24, Psalm 70:1‐5, Proverbs 24:8

Context: As Paul ends the familiar passage on the armor of God with a challenge to pray for each other.  He then asks the Ehephesian church to pray for him.

Ephesians 6: 19 – …and also (pray) for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.

Observations:

  • Pray for me
    • that words may be given to me
      • in opening my mouth boldly
        • to proclaim the mystery of the gospel
          • for which I am an ambassador in chains
  • that I may declare it boldly
    •  as I ought to speak

Apply: I have prayed this prayer over myself many times before I have taught a group or spoken one-on-one with someone who does not understand the gospel.  I need to ask others to pray it over me.

Will you stop for a minute and pray this passage over me?  Will you pray it over your own life?

  1. Sam,

    I am praying this over you and over me. “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which He has prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
