Pray for Me!
Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me; That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints; ~Romans 15:30-31
A little boy was making a lot of noise as the preacher started preaching. His father warned him that if he did not sit still and behave, then his father would take him outside and discipline him. The little boy did not heed his father’s warnings and kept up being naughty. After about five more minutes of this, the father glared at his little son, picked him up, and started walking to take his son outside. The commotion had the people in the back watching this unfold, and as the father was walking out with the son, the little boy said out loud, “Y’all pray for me!”
Romans 15:30-31 is a prayer request of the Apostle Paul. It is request of prayer for him. Paul teaches us a very important lesson on how to pray for one another, especially for those who are in a pastoral or missionary capacity. Let us see how we can pray more effectively for one another.
We see a saintly PASSION.
