Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving;
and pray for us also, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison,
that I may make it clear, as I ought to speak.
Conduct yourselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time.
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer every one.
Tych'icus will tell you all about my affairs; he is a beloved brother and faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord.
