Hebrews 13:19 Meaning and Commentary

Hebrews 13:19

But I beseech you the rather to do this
To pray earnestly; to strive together in their prayers for them, ( Romans 15:30-32 )

that I may be restored to you the sooner:
Christ's ministers are sometimes hindered from being with their people, through Satan, or his emissaries, creating troubles, or casting them into prison; which might be the apostle's case now; but God can make their way through all; and for this he should be prayed unto.

Hebrews 13:19 In-Context

17 Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account, so that they can do this with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.
18 Pray for us; for we are convinced that we have a clear conscience, wanting to conduct ourselves honorably in everything.
19 And I especially urge you to pray that I may be restored to you very soon.
20 Now may the God of peace, who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus-the great Shepherd of the sheep-with the blood of the everlasting covenant,
21 equip you with all that is good to do His will, working in us what is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
