Ephesians (part seventeen)
Paul's relationship with churches was one of mutual prayer support. In Ephesians chapter one he wrote that he does not cease to pray for them and give thanks; in Ephesians chapter six he urges them to pray at all times. He also invites them to pray for his own boldness in ministry. Such interdependence should characterize our lives as we rely on others to rely on the Lord for us. Does your prayer ministry include offers to pray for others as well as asking that they pray for you?
