LEARN TO LIVE IN A CONVERSATION WITH JESUS ALL THE TIME!!
18And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
6: 18 How can anyone pray on all occasions? One way is to make quick, brief prayers a habit as you respond to every situation you encounter throughout the day. These can be simple requests for help or spontaneous thanks for the beauty around you. In addition, you can order your life around God’s desires and teachings so that your very life becomes a prayer. You don’t have to isolate yourself from other people and from daily work in order to pray constantly. You can make prayer your life and your life a prayer while living in a world that needs God’s powerful influence. “Praying for all the Lord’s people” means praying for all believers in Christ; pray for the Christians you know and for the church around the world.
6: 19-20 Undiscouraged and undefeated, Paul wrote powerful letters of encouragement from prison. Paul did not ask the Ephesians to pray that his chains would be removed but that he would continue to speak fearlessly for Christ in spite of them. God can use us in any circumstance to do his will. Even as we pray for a change in our circumstances, we should also pray that God will accomplish his plan through us right where we are. Knowing God’s eternal purpose for us will help us through the difficult times. Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible
