Pray also for me. Pray that when I open my mouth, the right words will be given to me. Then I can be bold as I tell the mystery of the good news.
Because of the good news, I am being held by chains as the Lord's messenger. So pray that I will be bold as I preach the good news. That's what I should do.
Tychicus is a dear brother. He is faithful in serving the Lord. He will tell you everything about me. Then you will know how I am and what I am doing.
That's why I am sending him to you. I want you to know how we are. And I want him to cheer you up.
May God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give peace to the brothers and sisters. May they also give them love and faith.
May grace be given to everyone who loves our Lord Jesus Christ with a love that will never die.
