Also pray that God will give me the right words to say. Then I will speak boldly when I reveal the mystery of the Good News.
Because I have already been doing this as Christ's representative, I am in prison. So pray that I speak about this Good News as boldly as I have to.
I'm sending Tychicus to you. He is our dear brother and a faithful deacon in the Lord's work. He will tell you everything that is happening to me so that you will know how I'm getting along.
That's why I'm sending him to you so that you may know how we're doing and that he may encourage you.
May God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give our brothers and sisters peace and love along with faith.
His favor is with everyone who has an undying love for our Lord Jesus Christ.
