Do all this in prayer, asking for God's help. Pray on every occasion, as the Spirit leads. For this reason keep alert and never give up; pray always for all God's people.
And pray also for me, that God will give me a message when I am ready to speak, so that I may speak boldly and make known the gospel's secret.
For the sake of this gospel I am an ambassador, though now I am in prison. Pray that I may be bold in speaking about the gospel as I should.
Tychicus, our dear brother and faithful servant in the Lord's work, will give you all the news about me, so that you may know how I am getting along. 1
That is why I am sending him to you - to tell you how all of us are getting along and to encourage you.
May God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give to all Christians peace and love with faith.
May God's grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ with undying love.
