2 1Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving;
3 praying at the same time 2for us as well, that God will open up to us a 3door for 4the word, so that we may speak forth 5the mystery of Christ, for which I have also 6been imprisoned;
4 that I may make it clear 7in the way I ought to speak.
6 11Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with 12salt, so that you will know how you should 13respond to each person.
