Devote yourselves to prayer; stay alert in it with thanksgiving.
At the same time, pray also for us that God may open a door to us for the message, to speak the mystery of the Messiah-for which I am in prison-
so that I may reveal it as I am required to speak.
Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the time.
Your speech should always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you should answer each person.
