Also pray for me that when I speak, God will give me words so that I can tell the secret of the Good News without fear.
I have been sent to preach this Good News, and I am doing that now, here in prison. Pray that when I preach the Good News I will speak without fear, as I should.
I am sending to you Tychicus, our brother whom we love and a faithful servant of the Lord's work. He will tell you everything that is happening with me. Then you will know how I am and what I am doing.
I am sending him to you for this reason -- so that you will know how we are, and he can encourage you.
Peace and love with faith to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Grace to all of you who love our Lord Jesus Christ with love that never ends.
