“Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds” (Colossians 4:2-3)
Paul while in prison is writing a letter to the Colossians asking them to be in continuous prayer, watching what God will do and thanking Him in advance. At the end of the verse Paul is asking them to pray for opportunities to witness to spread the Gospel of Christ. May the Lord give us boldness to spread the Gospel.
Yours in Christ,
