Re:Verse passage – Ephesians 6:17-20 (day six)

Did you notice what Paul didn’t ask them to pray for? He asks them to pray for words and boldness, all while he is imprisoned in Rome. Why doesn’t he ask them to pray for his release or to end his suffering? But Paul makes no mention of these personal needs.

It’s not that Paul didn’t want out of prison, but that he believed God was using him in the midst of his suffering. Paul doesn’t lose sight of God’s Kingdom purpose in his life, regardless of his circumstances.

I ask myself, will I look through my circumstances to see what God is doing, or will my circumstances keep me from seeing what he is doing?

Praying it’s the former.
