TODAY’S PRAYER TARGET
PRAYER TARGET: AUGUST 2019
A Letter from the FEBC President
“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 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. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly as I should” (Colossians 4:2-4).
Throughout his letters to the early churches, the apostle Paul gives instructions regarding prayer. He describes the integral role prayer plays in his own life, providing an example to follow for anyone desiring to grow in their walk with the Lord.
Here in his letter to the believers in Colossae, Paul encourages them to make prayer a priority. He tells them to remain aware of the needs around them and to express their thanks for God’s presence working in and through them.
As is always true with Paul, his heart is passionately focused on sharing the Gospel. Out of this desire comes Paul’s specific request that the believers in Colossae will ask God not only to open the door for him to preach the Gospel, but also that he will be able to communicate the message well.
I encourage you to join with all of us here at FEBC in following Paul’s example, praying that the Lord will open even more doors for sharing the message of the Gospel.
Until all have heard,
Edward W. Cannon
