And pray in the Spirit1 on all occasions2 with all kinds of prayers and requests.3 With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying4 for all the saints.
Pray also for me,5 that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly6 make known the mystery7 of the gospel,
for which I am an ambassador8 in chains.9 Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
Tychicus,10 the dear brother and faithful servant in the Lord, will tell you everything, so that you also may know how I am and what I am doing.
I am sending him to you for this very purpose, that you may know how we are,11 and that he may encourage you.1223
Peace13 to the brothers, and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love.
