Scripture: Colossians 4:1-4
Colossians 4:1-4 says, “Masters, give your bondservants what is just and fair, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven. Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.” God has placed many prayer passages, His own prayers right from the Bible, that serve as guidelines for our prayers. But beyond that, they are Word-prayers that can become so much a part of our heart and walk that they will come forth in our prayer closet just as they were written. His Word is just as much ours today as it was for the early church. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. The early church prayed, God heard and the world saw! Is this not the pattern of Scripture? Ask God to judge Nabals! May their wealth be transferred to the church for God’s purposes!
